A responsive reading for today.

IMG_5241.JPGOur reading today is from Psalm 71. Let’s read it together. I’ll read the light print, we’ll read the bold print together.

In you, Lord, I have taken refuge; let me never be put to shame.

In your righteousness, rescue me and deliver me; turn your ear to me and save me.
Be my rock of refuge, to which I can always go;
give the command to save me, for you are my rock and my fortress.

In you, Lord, I have taken refuge; let me never be put to shame.

Deliver me, my God, from the hand of the wicked,
from the grasp of those who are evil and cruel.
For you have been my hope, Sovereign Lord, my confidence since my youth.
From birth I have relied on you; you brought me forth from my mother’s womb.
I will ever praise you.

In you, Lord, I have taken refuge; let me never be put to shame.

I have become a sign to many; you are my strong refuge.
My mouth is filled with your praise, declaring your splendor all day long.
Do not cast me away when I am old;
do not forsake me when my strength is gone.

In you, Lord, I have taken refuge; let me never be put to shame.

This is God’s Word.

Thanks be to God.
