A David Psalm
 1-2God, listen to me shout, bend an ear to my prayer. 
   When I'm far from anywhere, 
      down to my last gasp, 
   I call out, "Guide me 
      up High Rock Mountain!" 

 3-5 You've always given me breathing room, 
      a place to get away from it all, 
   A lifetime pass to your safe-house, 
      an open invitation as your guest. 
   You've always taken me seriously, God, 
      made me welcome among those who know and love you. 

 6-8 Let the days of the king add up 
      to years and years of good rule. 
   Set his throne in the full light of God; 
      post Steady Love and Good Faith as lookouts, 
   And I'll be the poet who sings your glory— 
      and live what I sing every day.
