Lord, You have been our dwelling place
throughout all generations.
Before the mountains were born
or You brought forth the earth and the world,
from everlasting to everlasting You are God.
Who knows the power of Your anger?
For Your wrath is as great as the fear that is due You.
Teach us to number our days aright,
that we may gain a heart of wisdom.
Relent, O Lord! How long will it be?
Have compassion on Your servants.
Satisfy us in the morning with Your unfailing love,
that we may sing for joy and be glad all our days.
Make us glad for as many days as you have afflicted us,
for as many years as we have seen trouble.
May Your deeds be shown to Your servants,
Your splendor to their children.
May the favor of the Lord our God rest upon us;
establish the work of our hands for us ~
Yes, establish the work of our hands.
( verses 1-2, 11-17)
