1 From time beyond my memory
your love has been my rock, O Lord;
since childhood days I trusted you,
and in my youth declared your word.

2 But when the years are passing by
as friends depart and spirits fail:
O God, come quickly to my side,
that in your strength I may prevail.

3 We praise you, God, the holy One,
proclaim your love from day to day;
exalt your triumphs to the skies
and trust your mercy, come what may:

4 Sing glory to the Father, Son
and to the Spirit glory be;
let hymns to God begun on earth
resound through all eternity!

After Psalm 71, Michael Perry (1942 - 1996)
