Psalm 71

In te, Domine, speravi
Go not far from me, O God; *
my God, make haste to help me.
Let those who are my adversaries be confounded and perish; *
let those who seek to do me evil be covered with shame and dishonor.
As for me, I will always patiently abide, *
and will praise you more and more.
My mouth shall speak daily of your righteousness and salvation, *
for I know not the end of them.
I will go forth in the strength of the Lord God, *
and will make mention of your righteousness, yours alone.
You, O God, have taught me from my youth, *
even to this day I am telling of your wondrous works.
Forsake me not, O God, in my old age, when I am gray-headed, *
until I have proclaimed your strength to this generation, and your power to all those who are yet to come.
Your righteousness, O God, reaches to the heavens; *
you have done great things. Who is like you, O God?
Oh, what great troubles and adversities you have shown me! And yet you have turned and refreshed me; *
indeed, you have brought me again from the depths of the earth.
You have brought me to great honor *
and comforted me on every side;
