BibleGateway: Psalm 71:9-18

ESV Text: Psalm 71:9-18



KJV Text:

The section starts at about 0:52 and ends at about 2:7

9 Cast me not off in the time of old age; forsake me not when my strength faileth. 10 For mine enemies speak against me; and they that lay wait for my soul take counsel together, 11 Saying, God hath forsaken him: persecute and take him; for there is none to deliver him. 12 O God, be not far from me: O my God, make haste for my help. 13 Let them be confounded and consumed that are adversaries to my soul; let them be covered with reproach and dishonour that seek my hurt.

     14 But I will hope continually, and will yet praise thee more and more. 15 My mouth shall shew forth thy righteousness and thy salvation all the day; for I know not the numbers thereof. 16 I will go in the strength of the Lord GOD: I will make mention of thy righteousness, even of thine only. 17 O God, thou hast taught me from my youth: and hitherto have I declared thy wondrous works. 18 Now also when I am old and greyheaded, O God, forsake me not; until I have shewed thy strength unto this generation, and thy power to every one that is to come.(KJV)


Hymn: TLH 394:
My Faith Looks Up to Thee

— Organ Audio

1. My faith looks up to Thee, 
Thou Lamb of Calvary, 
Savior divine. 
Now hear me while I pray; 
Take all my guilt away; 
Oh, let me from this day 
Be wholly Thine! 

2. May Thy rich grace impart 
Strength to my fainting heart, 
My zeal inspire! 
As Thou hast died for me, 
Oh, may my love to Thee 
Pure, warm, and changeless be, 
A living fire! 

3. While life’s dark maze I tread 
And griefs around me spread, 
Be Thou my Guide. 
Bid darkness turn to day, 
Wipe sorrow’s tears away, 
Nor let me ever stray 
From Thee aside. 

4. When ends life’s transient dream, 
When death’s cold, sullen stream 
Shall o’er me roll, 
Blest Savior, then, in love, 
Fear and distrust remove; 
Oh, bear me safe above, 
A ransomed soul!
