P71b. But as for me, with confidence

14 But as for me, with confidence
still hope in thee will I;
and yet with praises more and more
I will thee magnify.
15 Thy justice and thy saving help
my mouth abroad shall show,
even all the day; for I thereof
the numbers do not know.

16 And I will constantly go on
in strength of God the Lord;
and thine own righteousness, even thine
alone, I will record.
17 For even from my youth, O God,
by thee I have been taught;
and hitherto I have declared
the wonders thou hast wrought.

18 Forsake me not, O God, when I
old and gray-headed grow:
till to this age thy strength, thy power
to all to come, I show.
19 And thy most perfect righteousness
O Lord, is very high,
who hast so great things done: O God,
who is like unto thee?

20 Thou, Lord, who great adversities,
and sore, to me didst show,
shalt me revive, and bring again
from depths of earth below.
21 My greatness and my power thou wilt
increase, and far extend:
on every side against all grief
thou wilt me comfort send.

22 Thee, even thy truth, I’ll also praise,
my God, with psaltery:
thou Holy One of Israel,
with harp I’ll sing to thee.
23 My lips shall much rejoice in thee,
when I thy praises sound;
my soul, which thou redeemed hast,
in joy shall much abound.

24 My tongue thy justice shall proclaim,
continuing all day long;
for they confounded are, and shamed,
that seek to do me wrong.
