|Psalms 71: 3 - 6, 16 - 17
||Be thou to me a rock of refuge, a strong fortress, 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.
||With the mighty deeds of the Lord GOD I will come, I will praise thy righteousness, thine alone.
||O God, from my youth thou hast taught me, and I still proclaim thy wondrous deeds.
