1 O gracious God, forsake me not
When I am old and gray,
That unto those that follow me
I may Thy might display.
2 Thy perfect righteousness, O God,
The height of heaven exceeds;
O who is like to Thee, Who hast
Performed such mighty deeds?
3 Thou Who hast sent me many griefs
wilt yet my soul restore,
And out of sorrow's lowest depths
Wilt bring me forth once more.
4 O turn again and comfort me,
My wanting strength increase,
And for Thy faithfulness, O God,
My praise shall never cease.
5 Thou Holy One of Israel,
To Thee sweet songs I raise;
The soul Thou hast redeemed from death
Shall give Thee joyful praise.
6 My enemies that seek my hurt
Thy help has put to shame;
My thankful tongue will ceaselessly
Thy righteousness proclaim.
