Psalm of the Day Bread of Life Psalm 71:1–6
1In you, O Lord, do I take | refuge;*
let me never be | put to shame!
2In your righteousness deliver me and | rescue me;*
incline your ear to me, and | save me!
3Be to me a rock of refuge,
to which I may contin- | ually come;*
you have given the command to save me,
for you are my rock and my | fortress.
4Rescue me, O my God, from the hand of the | wicked,*
from the grasp of the unjust and | cruel man.
5For you, O Lord, | are my hope,*
my trust, O Lord, | from my youth.
6Upon you I have leaned from before my birth;
you are he who took me from my | mother’s womb.*
My praise is continually | of you.
