Hope . . . Psalm 71:1-3,19

O Lord, I have come to You for protection; don’t let me be disgraced.

Save me and rescue me, for You do what is right.

Turn Your ear to listen to me, and set me free.

Be my rock of safety where I can always hide.

Give the order to save me, for You are my rock and my fortress.

Your righteousness, O God, reaches to the heavens.

You have done such wonderful things.

Who can compare with You, O God?
