Seventh Sunday of Easter or Ascension of the Lord and Psalm 61

Ascension Thursday was actually a few days ago, but in many places the Ascension of the Lord will be celebrated today.  Readings for both are here.  You can find more information about the Ascension here and the feast here.

Psalm 61
To the chief Musician upon Neginah, A Psalm of David.

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 thou hast been a shelter for me, and a strong tower from the enemy. I will abide in thy tabernacle for ever: I will trust in the covert of thy wings. Selah.

For thou, O God, hast heard my vows: thou hast given me the heritage of those that fear thy name. Thou wilt prolong the king's life: and his years as many generations. He shall abide before God for ever: O prepare mercy and truth, which may preserve him. So will I sing praise unto thy name for ever, that I may daily perform my vows.
