PSALM 71:1-6
METER:  87 87 66 66 7
This is the tune for the hymn "A Mighty Fortress Is Our God"

1.  In you, O Lord, I take ref-uge;
    Let me be a-shamed nev-er.
    In just-ice save and res-cue me;
    In-cline your ear and save me.
    O Lord, be unto me
    A rock for my safe-ty,
    A fort-ress of great strength,
    In which I may be saved,
    For you're my rock and fort-ress.
2.  Save me, O God, from wick-ed hands,
    From the un-just and cru-el.
    For you, Lord God, are all my hope;
    From days of youth, I trust you.
    Upon you I have leaned,
    Yes, ev-er since my birth;
    You are the one who took
    Me from my moth-er's womb.
    I will at all times praise you.
