Psalm 71

1In you, O Lord, I take refuge; let me never be put to shame.

2In your righteousness deliver me and rescue me; incline your ear to me and save me.

3Be to me a rock of refuge, a strong fortress, to save me, for you are my rock and my fortress.

4Rescue me, O my God, from the hand of the wicked, from the grasp of the unjust and cruel.

5For you, O Lord, are my hope, my trust, O Lord, from my youth.

6Upon you I have leaned from my birth; it was you who took me from my mother’s womb. My praise is continually of you.
