In you Lord have I taken my refuge; let me not be put to shame.
In your righteousness, rescue and deliver me; turn your ear and save me.
Be my rock and refuge, to which I can always go;
Give the command to save , for you are my rock and fortress.
Deliver me, my God, from the hand of the wicked, from the grasp of those who are evil are cruel.
For you have been my hope, Sovereign LORD, my confidence since my youth.
From birth I have relied on you; you brought me forth from my mother’s womb.
I will ever praise you.
I have become a sign to many; you are my strong refuge.
My mouth is filled with your praise, declaring your splendor all day long.
Do not cast me away when I am old; do not forsake me when my strength is gone.
For my enemies speak evil against me; those who wait to kill me conspire together.
They say, “God has forsaken him; pursue and seize him, for no one will rescue him.”
Don’t be far from me, my God; come quickly, God, to help me.
May my accusers perish in shame; may those who want to harm me be covered with scorn and disgrace.
As for me, I will always have hope; I will praise you more and more.
My mouth will tell of your righteous deeds, of your saving acts all day long.-though I know not how to relate them all.
Since my youth, God, you have taught me, and to this day I declare your marvelous deeds.
Even when I am old and gray, do not forsake me, my God, till I declare your power to the next generation; your mighty acts to all who are to come.
Your righteousness, God, reaches to the heavens, you who have done great things. Who is like you, God?
Though you have made me see troubles, many and bitter, you will restore my life again; from the depths of the earth you will again bring me up.
You will increase my honour and comfort me once more.
