And Comfort Me Once More

Exactly what am feeling right now.. Psalm 71, my second favorite after Psalm 91. Here's not the full chapter of Psalm 71, only some parts that I love the most :D

In you, LORD, I have taken refuge; let me never be put to shame.

In your righteousness, rescue me and deliver me;
turn Your ear to me and save me.

Be my rock of refuge, to which I can always go;

give the command to save me, for You are my rock and my fortress.

Deliver me, my God, from the hand of the wicked,
from the grasp of those who are evil and cruel.

For You have been my hope, Sovereign LORD, my confidence since my youth.

Do not cast me away when I am old;
do not forsake me when my strength is gone.

Do not be far from me, my God; come quickly, God, to help me.

May my accusers perish in shame; may those who want to harm me
be covered with scorn and disgrace.

As for me, I will always have hope; I will praise You more and more.

I will come and proclaim Your mighty acts, Sovereign LORD;

I will proclaim Your righteous deeds, Yours alone.

Your righteousness, God, reaches to the heavens,

You who have done great things. Who is like You, God?

Though You have made me see troubles, many and bitter,

You will restore my life again; from the depths of the earth,
You will again bring me up.

You will increase my honor and comfort me once more.

I will praise you with the harp for your faithfulness, my God;

I will sing praise to you with the lyre, Holy One of Israel.

My lips will shout for joy when I sing praise to You— I whom You have delivered.

My tongue will tell of Your righteous acts all day long,

for those who wanted to harm me have been put to shame and confusion.
