     14 But I will hope continually, and will yet praise thee more and more. 15 My mouth shall shew forth thy righteousness and thy salvation all the day; for I know not the numbers thereof. 16 I will go in the strength of the Lord GOD: I will make mention of thy righteousness, even of thine only. 17 O God, thou hast taught me from my youth: and hitherto have I declared thy wondrous works. 18 Now also when I am old and greyheaded, O God, forsake me not; until I have shewed thy strength unto this generation, and thy power to every one that is to come. 19 Thy righteousness also, O God, is very high, who hast done great things: O God, who is like unto thee! 20 Thou, which hast shewed me great and sore troubles, shalt quicken me again, and shalt bring me up again from the depths of the earth. 21 Thou shalt increase my greatness, and comfort me on every side.(KJV)

1. Jehovah, let me now adore Thee, 
For where is there a God such, Lord, as Thou? 
With songs I fain would come before Thee; 
Oh, let Thy Holy Spirit teach me now 
To praise Thee in His name through whom alone 
Our songs can please Thee, through Thy blessed Son! 

2. O Father, draw me to my Savior 
That Thy dear Son may draw me unto Thee; 
Thy Spirit guide my whole behavior 
And rule both sense and reason thus in me 
That, Lord, Thy peace from me may ne’er depart, 
But wake sweet melodies within my heart. 

3. Grant that Thy Spirit prompt my praises, 
Then shall my singing surely please Thine ear; 
Sweet are the sounds my heart then raises, 
My prayer in truth and spirit Thou wilt hear. 
Then shall Thy Spirit raise my heart to Thee 
To sing Thee psalms of praise in high degree. 

4. For He can plead for me with sighings 
That are unspeakable to lips like mine; 
He bids me pray with earnest cryings, 
Bears witness with my soul that I am Thine, 
Joint heir with Christ, and thus may dare to say: 
O heavenly Father, hear me when I pray! 

5. When thus my heart in prayer ascendeth, 
Through Thine own Holy Spirit, unto Thee, 
Thy heart, O Father, kindly bendeth 
Its fervent love and favor unto me, 
Rejoicing my petition to fulfil 
Which I have made according to Thy will. 

6. And what Thy Spirit thus hath taught me 
To seek from Thee must needs be such a prayer 
As Thou wilt grant through Him who bought me 
And raised me up to be Thy child and heir. 
In Jesus’ name I boldly seek Thy face 
And take from Thee, my Father, grace for grace.
