Psalm 71, vv. 7-8 (the full psalm text may be found at Psalm 71)
Repleatur os meum laude tua
et hymnum dicam gloriae tuae tota die magnificentia tua:
Noli me projicere in tempore senectutis
cum defecerit virtus mea ne derelinquas me.
Let my mouth be filled with your praise
and I will sing a hymn to your glory and magnificence all day long.
Do not reject me in the time of old age;
do not abandon me when my strength fails.
