16 I will proclaim your acts, O Lord GOD—
your righteousness, yes, yours alone.
17 For since my youth, O God, you’ve taught me,
and still your wonders I make known.
18 And now, my God, do not forsake me
when old and grey I have become,
Till I declare your might and power,
to generations yet to come.
19 Your justice reaches to the heavens;
who is like you, O God, in strength?
20 Though you have shown me many troubles,
you will restore my soul at length.
From the deep places of earth’s darkness
you will bring up my life once more.
21 You will increase your servant’s honour,
my comfort once again restore.
22 O God, your faithfulness towards me
with sound of harp I’ll gladly tell;
To you with lyre I will sing praises,
O Holy One of Israel.
23 My lips will shout with joy; I’ll praise you
and I’ll extol your faithfulness,
When you have rescued and redeemed me
from every trouble and distress.
24 All day my tongue will tell the story,
as I your righteous acts proclaim,
For everyone who wished to harm me
has been disgraced and put to shame.
