1. For even from my youth, O God, by Thee have I been taught;
And hither to I have declared the wonders Thou hast wrought.
And now, O God, forsake me not when I am old and gray,
till I proclaim Thy wondrous deeds to this and every age.
2. Thy perfect righteousness, O God, the heaven's height exceeds;
O God, who is like Thee, who has performed such mighty deeds?
Thou Who has shown me trials sore and great adversities
wilt quicken me again and bring me from the depths of earth.
3. My greatness and my power Thou wilt increase and far extend,
against all grief on every side to me will comfort send.
And I will also praise Thy truth, O God, with psaltery;
Thou Holy One of Israel, with harp I'll sing to Thee.
