For you have heard my vows, O God.
    You have given me an inheritance reserved for those who fear your name.
Add many years to the life of the king!
    May his years span the generations!
May he reign under God’s protection forever.
    May your unfailing love and faithfulness watch over him. Then I will sing praises to your name forever
    as I fulfill my vows each day. Psalm 61:5-8

“Then I will sing praises to your name forever
