Psalm 71:1-8 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)
God’s Help in Old Age
1 Lord, I seek refuge in You;
let me never be disgraced.
2 In Your justice, rescue and deliver me;
listen closely to me and save me.
3 Be a rock of refuge for me,
where I can always go.
Give the command to save me,
for You are my rock and fortress.
4 Deliver me, my God, from the power of the wicked,
from the grasp of the unjust and oppressive.
5 For You are my hope, Lord God,
my confidence from my youth.
6 I have leaned on You from birth;
You took me from my mother’s womb.
My praise is always about You.
7 I have become an ominous sign to many,
but You are my strong refuge.
8 My mouth is full of praise
and honor to You all day long.
