Upon you I have leaned from before my birth; you are he who took me from my mother’s womb. My praise is continually of you… O God, from my youth you have taught me, and I still proclaim your wondrous deeds.” In other words, both Polycarp (the disciple of the Apostle John) and the author of Psalm 71 served the Lord faithfully from birth.
