Psalm 71. In te, Domine, speravi.

From the Book of Divine Worship - The Psalter or Psalms of David - Traditional - Fourteenth Day - Morning Prayer.
  1. IN thee, O Lord, have I put my trust; let me never be put to confusion, *
    but rid me and deliver me in thy righteousness; incline thine ear unto me, and save me.
  2. Be thou my stronghold, whereunto I may alway resort: *
    thou hast promised to help me, for thou art my house of defence, and my castle.
  3. Deliver me, O my God, out of the hand of the ungodly, *
    out of the hand of the unrighteous and cruel man.
  4. For thou, O Lord GOD, art the thing that I long for: *
    thou art my hope, even from my youth.
  5. Through thee have I been holden up ever since I was born: *
    thou art he that took me out of my mother's womb: my praise shall be alway of thee.
  6. I am become as it were a monster unto many, *
    but my sure trust is in thee.
  7. O let my mouth be filled with thy praise, *
    that I may sing of thy glory and honour all the day long.
  8. Cast me not away in the time of age; *
    forsake me not when my strength faileth me.
  9. For mine enemies speak against me; *
    and they that lay wait for my soul take their counsel together, saying,
  10. God hath forsaken him; *
    persecute him, and take him, for there is none to deliver him.
  11. Go not far from me, O God; *
    my God, haste thee to help me.
  12. Let them be confounded and perish that are against my soul; *
    let them be covered with shame and dishonour that seek to do me evil.
  13. As for me, I will patiently abide alway, *
    and will praise thee more and more.
  14. My mouth shall daily speak of thy righteousness and salvation; *
    for I know no end thereof.
  15. I will go forth in the strength of the Lord GOD, *
    and will make mention of thy righteousness only.
  16. Thou, O God, hast taught me from my youth up until now; *
    therefore will I tell of thy wondrous works.
  17. Forsake me not, O God, in mine old age, when I am grayheaded, *
    until I have showed thy strength unto this generation, and thy power to all them that are yet for to come.
  18. Thy righteousness, O God, is very high, *
    and great things are they that thou hast done: O God, who is like unto thee!
  19. O what great troubles and adversities hast thou showed me! and yet didst thou turn and refresh me; *
    yea, and broughtest me from the deep of the earth again.
  20. Thou hast brought me to great honour, *
    and comforted me on every side:
  21. Therefore will I praise thee, and thy faithfulness, O God, playing upon an instrument of music: *
    unto thee will I sing upon the harp, O thou Holy One of Israel.
  22. My lips will be glad when I sing unto thee; *
    and so will my soul whom thou hast delivered.
  23. My tongue also shall talk of thy righteousness all the day long; *
    for they are confounded and brought unto shame that seek to do me evil.
