Hear my cry, O God!
Attend unto my prayer.
From the end of the earth will I cry to you.
When my heart is overwhelmed,
Lead me to the rock that is higher than I. (Psalm 61:1-2)

God be merciful unto us, and bless us,
And cause Thy face to shine upon us. (Psalm 67:1)

Let Thy people praise Thee, O God,
Let all the the people praise Thee, O God.
O let the nations be glad, and sing for joy,
For God shall judge the people righteously. (Psalm 67:3-4)

Hallelujah, Amen.
