Focus: Psalm 71

Your salvation far and wide.
    Beyond my simple mind.
Beyond words and depths inside,
    Its edge I cannot find.

Since before first day of life,
    Before I drew a breath,
In me you worked good and strife
    To save me ’fore my death.

Often, Lord, my eyes are on
    The troubles of the day,
Not your saving hand upon
    Me all along life’s way.

Open eyes to see the new
    Paths leading from hell’s flame.
Open lips to sing of you
    Of my salvation’s name.

Let me not go to the grave
    Before the youth I tell
Of your many acts that save
    And pull me from sin’s cell.

Let the generations see
    Your strong and holy tower
By the words you give to me
    Until life’s final hour.
