Hear my cry, O God; attend unto my prayer. From the end of the earth will I cry unto thee, when my heart is overwhelmed: lead me to the rock that is higher than I. For mine iniquities are gone over mine head: as an heavy burden they are too heavy for me. Therefore is my spirit overwhelmed within me; my heart within me is desolate. But I will hope continually, and will yet praise thee more and more. For thou art my hope, O Lord God: thou art my trust from my youth. I will love thee, O Lord, my strength. For thou art my rock and my fortress; therefore for thy name's sake lead me, and guide me.
