90 Our Lord, in all generations you have been our home. 2 You have always been God— long before the birth of the mountains, even before you created the earth and the world.
3 At your command we die and turn back to dust, 4 but a thousand years mean nothing to you! They are merely a day gone by or a few hours in the night.
5 You bring our lives to an end just like a dream. We are merely tender grass 6 that sprouts and grows in the morning, but dries up by evening. 7 Your furious anger frightens and destroys us, 8 and you know all of our sins, even those we do in secret.
9 Your anger is a burden each day we live, then life ends like a sigh. 10 We can expect seventy years, or maybe eighty, if we are healthy, but even our best years bring trouble and sorrow. Suddenly our time is up, and we disappear. 11 No one knows the full power of your furious anger, but it is as great as the fear that we owe to you. 12 Teach us to use wisely all the time we have.
13 Help us, Lord! Don’t wait! Pity your servants. 14 When morning comes, let your love satisfy all our needs. Then we can celebrate and be glad for what time we have left. 15 Make us happy for as long as you caused us trouble and sorrow. 16 Do wonderful things for us, your servants, and show your mighty power to our children. 17 Our Lord and our God, treat us with kindness and let all go well for us. Please let all go well!
