My song will tell of your justice

Psalm 70

  • Refrain:
    My song will tell of your justice,
    your wonders I proclaim.
    My song will tell of your justice,
    your wonders I proclaim.
  1. In you, O Lord, I take refuge;
    never let me be put to shame.
    In your justice rescue me;
    heed my cry and save me.
  2. Be a rock where I can take refuge;
    build strong walls to hold me.
    You are my rock, my steadfast love:
    save me from all evil.
  3. In you, O Lord, I place my hope
    since the days of my youth;
    In your Word I have found strength;
    in your Word there is help.
  4. My lips will speak of your justice
    all the days I shall live;
    I'll proclaim your wonders still,
    ev'ry day of my life!
