1Hear my cry, O God,
listen to my prayer;
2from the end of the earth I call to you
when my heart is faint.
Lead me to the rock
that is higher than I,
3for you have been my refuge,
a strong tower against the enemy.
8So will I ever sing praises to your name,
as I perform my vows day after day. — Psa 61:1-8
Of “the rock”, theologian John Gill says this: “Christ is meant, the Rock of Israel, the Rock of our salvation, and our refuge. …who by his height is able to protect and defend his people from all their enemies; and by the shade he casts to refresh and comfort them; and by the sufficiency in him to supply all their wants; for he is as a rock impregnable, and well stored…”
Thank you, sweet Savior, for being the high Rock that protects us, refreshes us, and supplies our every need!
