For Conrad, adapted from Psalm 61
Hear our cries, O God,
listen to my prayer;
from the end of the earth we call to you
when my heart is faint.
Lead Conrad to the rock
that is higher than he is,
for you have been his refuge,
a strong tower against the enemy.
Let Conrad dwell in your tent forever!
Let Him take refuge under the shelter of your wings! Selah
For you, O God, have heard our vows;
you have given us the heritage of those who fear your name.
Prolong the life of our brother;
may his years endure to all generations!
May he be enthroned forever before God;
appoint steadfast love and faithfulness to watch over him!
So that Vio and Conrad will ever sing praises to your name,
as they perform my vows day after day.
