Praise be to the Lord, to God our Savior, who daily bears our burdens.
Do not cast me away when I am old; do not forsake me when my strength is gone.
Even when I am old and gray, do not forsake me, my God, till I declare your power to the next generation, your mighty acts to all who are to come.
Who has done this and carried it through, calling forth the generations from the beginning? I, the LORD--with the first of them and with the last--I am he."
Yes, and from ancient days I am he. No one can deliver out of my hand. When I act, who can reverse it?"
"Listen to me, Jacob, Israel, whom I have called: I am he; I am the first and I am the last.
