Psalm 71 Part 1

Author: Isaac Watts Meter: Appears in 109 hymnals Scripture: Psalm 71:5-9 First Line: My God, my everlasting hope Lyrics: My God, my everlasting hope, I live upon thy truth; Thine hands have held my childhood up, And strengthened all my youth. My flesh was fashioned by thy power, With all these limbs of mine; And from my mother's painful hour, I've been entirely thine. Still has my life new wonders seen Repeated every year; Behold, my days that yet remain, I trust them to thy care. Cast me not off when strength declines, When hoary hairs arise; And round me let thy glory shine, Whene'er thy servant dies. Then in the hist'ry of my age, When men review my days, They'll read thy love in every page, In every line thy praise.

Thou art my everlasting trust, Thy goodness I adore; And since I knew thy graces first, I speak thy glories more. My feet shall travel all the length Of the celestial road, And march with courage in thy strength, To see my Father God. When I am filled with sore distress For some surprising sin, I'll plead thy perfect righteousness, And mention none but thine. How will my lips rejoice to tell The vict'ries of my King! My soul, redeemed from sin and hell, Shall thy salvation sing. My tongue shall all the day proclaim My Savior and my God; His death has brought my foes to shame, And drowned them in his blood. Awake, awake, my tuneful powers; With this delightful song I'll entertain the darkest hours, Nor think the season long.

In Thee I put my stedfast Trust

Appears in 32 hymnals Scripture: Psalm 71 Lyrics: 1 In Thee I put my stedfast Trust, defend me, Lord, from Shame: Incline thine Ear, and save my Soul; for righteous is thy Name. 2 Be Thou my strong Abiding-place, to which I may resort: 'Tis thy Decree that keeps me safe; Thou art my Rock and Fort. 4,5 From cruel and ungodly Men protect and set me free; For thou my earliest Youth till now, my Hope has been in Thee. 6 Thy constant Care did safely guard my tender infant Days; Thou took'st me from my Mother's Womb, to sing thy constant Praise. 7.8 While some on me with Wonder gaze thy Hand supports me still: Thy Honour therefore, and thy Praise, my Mouth shall always fill. 9 Reject not then thy Servant, Lord, when I with Age decay: Forsake me not, when, worn with Years, my Vigour fades away. 10 My Foes, against my Fame and me, with crafty malice speak; Against my Soul they lay their Snares, and mutual Counsel take. 11 "His God, say they, forsakes him now, "on whom he did rely: "Pursue and take him, whilst no Hope "of timely Aid is nigh." 12 But Thou, my God, withdraw not far: For speedy Help I call; 13 To Shame and Ruin bring my Foes, that seek to work my Fall. 14 But as for me, my steadfast Hope shall on thy Pow'r depend; And I in grateful Songs of Praise my Time to come will spend. Part II 15 Thy righteous Acts, and saving Health, my Mouth shall still declare; Unable yet to count them all, tho' summ'd with utmost Care. 16 While God vouchsafes me His Support, I'll in His Strength go on; All other Righteousness disclaim, and mention His alone. 17 Thou, Lord, hast taught me, from my Youth, to praise thy glorious Name: And ever since thy wondrous Works have been my constant Theme. 18 Then now forsake me not, when I am grey and feeble grown; 'till I to these, and future Times, thy Strength and Pow'r have shown. 19 How high thy Justice soars, O God! how great and wond'rous are The mighty Works which Thou hast done! who may with Thee compare! 20 Me, whom thy Hand has sorely press'd, thy Grace shall yet relieve; And from the lowest Depth of Woe with tender Care retrieve. 21 Through Thee, my Time to come shall be with Pow'r and Greatness crown'd; And me, who dismal Years have pass'd, thy comforts shall surround. 22 Therefore, with Psaltery and Harp, thy truth, O Lord, I'll praise; To Thee, the God of Jacob's Race, My Voice in Anthems raise. 23 Then Joy shall fill my Mouth, and Songs employ my chearful Voice; My grateful Soul, by Thee redeem'd, shall in thy Strength rejoice. 24 My tongue thy just and righteous Acts shall all the Day proclaim; Because Thou didst confound thy Foes, and brought'st them all to Shame.

Rock of Ages

Author: Augustus M. Toplady Meter: Appears in 2,570 hymnals Scripture: Psalm 71:3 First Line: Rock of Ages, cleft for me Lyrics: 1 Rock of Ages, cleft for me, Let me hide myself in Thee; Let the water and the blood, From Thy wounded side which flowed, Be of sin the double cure, Cleanse me from its guilt and power. 2 Not the labors of my hands Can fulfill Thy law's demands; Could my zeal no respite know, Could my tears forever flow, All for sin could not atone; Thou must save, and Thou alone. 3 Nothing in my hand I bring, Simply to Thy cross I cling; Naked, come to Thee for dress, Helpless, look to Thee for grace; Foul, I to the fountain fly; Wash me, Savior, or I die. 4 While I draw this fleeting breath, When my eyelids close in death, When I rise to worlds unknown, See Thee on Thy judgment throne, Rock of Ages, cleft for me, Let me hide myself in Thee. Amen. Used With Tune: TOPLADY

God of my childhood, and my youth

Meter: Appears in 90 hymnals Scripture: Psalm 71:13-19 Lyrics: 13 God of my childhood, and my youth, The guide of all my days, I have declar'd thy heav'nly truth, And told thy wond'rous ways. 14 Wilt thou forsake my hoary hairs, And leave my fainting heart? Who shall sustain my sinking years, If God my strength depart? 15 Let me thy pow'r and truth proclaim To the rising age, And leave a savour of thy name When I shall quit the stage. 16 The land of silence and of death Attends my next remove; Oh may these poor remains of breath Teach the wide world thy love! 17 Thy righteousness is deep and high, Unsearchable thy deeds; Thy glory spreads beyond the sky, And all my praise exceeds. 18 Oft have I heard thy threat'nings roar, And oft endur'd the grief; But when thy hand has prest me sore, Thy grace was my relief. 19 By long experience I have known Thy sov'reign pow'r to save; At Thy command I venture down Securely to the grave. 20 When I lie buried deep in dust, My flesh shall be thy care; These wither'd limbs with thee I trust To raise them strong and fair.
