O God, from my youth You have taught me,
and I still proclaim Your wondrous deeds.
So even to old age and gray hairs,
O God, do not forsake me,
until I proclaim Your might to another generation,
Your power to all those to come.
Your righteousness, O God,
reaches the high heavens.
You who have done great things,
O God, who is like You?
I will also praise You with the harp
for Your faithfulness, O my God;
I will sing praises to You with the lyre,
O Holy One of Israel.
– Psalm 71: 5-6, 17-19, 22
