Psalm 90

1  Lord, you have been our refuge ♦︎
   from one generation to another.
2  Before the mountains were brought forth,
      or the earth and the world were formed, ♦︎
   from everlasting to everlasting you are God.
3  You turn us back to dust and say: ♦︎
   ‘Turn back, O children of earth.’
4  For a thousand years in your sight are but as yesterday, ♦︎
   which passes like a watch in the night.
5  You sweep them away like a dream; ♦︎
   they fade away suddenly like the grass.
6  In the morning it is green and flourishes; ♦︎
   in the evening it is dried up and withered.
7  For we consume away in your displeasure; ♦︎
   we are afraid at your wrathful indignation.
8  You have set our misdeeds before you ♦︎
   and our secret sins in the light of your countenance.
9  When you are angry, all our days are gone; ♦︎
   our years come to an end like a sigh.
10  The days of our life are three score years and ten,
      or if our strength endures, even four score; ♦︎
   yet the sum of them is but labour and sorrow,
      for they soon pass away and we are gone.
11  Who regards the power of your wrath ♦︎
   and your indignation like those who fear you?
12  So teach us to number our days ♦︎
   that we may apply our hearts to wisdom.
13  Turn again, O Lord; how long will you delay? ♦︎
   Have compassion on your servants.
14  Satisfy us with your loving-kindness in the morning, ♦︎
   that we may rejoice and be glad all our days.
15  Give us gladness for the days you have afflicted us, ♦︎
   and for the years in which we have seen adversity.
16  Show your servants your works, ♦︎
   and let your glory be over their children.
17  May the gracious favour of the Lord our God be upon us; ♦︎
   prosper our handiwork; O prosper the work of our hands.
