Psalm 61 [When Overwhelm’d With Grief]
by [?]


Psalm 61. 1-6
Safety in God.

When overwhelm’d with grief
My heart within me dies,
Helpless and far from all relief
To heaven I lift mine eyes.

O lead me to the rock
That’s high above my head,
And make the covert of thy wings
My shelter and my shade.

Within thy presence, Lord,
For ever I’ll abide;
Thou art the tower of my defence,
The refuge where I hide.

Thou givest me the lot
Of those that fear thy Name;
If endless life be their reward,
I shall possess the same.
