Psalm 71:1-6 Revised Standard Version (RSV)

Prayer for Lifelong Protection and Help

71 In thee, O Lord, do I take refuge;
    let me never be put to shame!
In thy righteousness deliver me and rescue me;
    incline thy ear to me, and save me!
Be thou to me a rock of refuge,
    a strong fortress,[a] to save me,
    for thou art my rock and my fortress.

Rescue me, O my God, from the hand of the wicked,
    from the grasp of the unjust and cruel man.
For thou, O Lord, art my hope,
    my trust, O Lord, from my youth.
Upon thee I have leaned from my birth;
    thou art he who took me from my mother’s womb.
My praise is continually of thee.
