Psalm 90. Domine, refugium.

From the Book of Divine Worship - The Psalter or Psalms of David - Traditional - Eighteenth Day - Morning Prayer.
  1. LORD, thou hast been our refuge, *
    from one generation to another.
  2. Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever the earth and the world were made, *
    thou art God from everlasting, and world without end.
  3. Thou turnest man to destruction; *
    again thou sayest, Come again, ye children of men.
  4. For a thousand years in thy sight are but as yesterday when it is past, *
    and as a watch in the night.
  5. As soon as thou scatterest them they are even as a sleep; *
    and fade away suddenly like the grass.
  6. In the morning it is green, and groweth up; *
    but in the evening it is cut down, dried up, and withered.
  7. For we consume away in thy displeasure, *
    and are afraid at thy wrathful indignation.
  8. Thou hast set our misdeeds before thee; *
    and our secret sins in the light of thy countenance.
  9. For when thou art angry all our days are gone: *
    we bring our years to an end, as it were a tale that is told.
  10. The days of our age are threescore years and ten; and though men be so strong that they come to fourscore years, *
    yet is their strength then but labour and sorrow; so soon passeth it away, and we are gone.
  11. But who regardeth the power of thy wrath? *
    or feareth aright thy indignation?
  12. So teach us to number our days, *
    that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom.
  13. Turn thee again, O Lord, at the last, *
    and be gracious unto thy servants.
  14. O satisfy us with thy mercy, and that soon: *
    so shall we rejoice and be glad all the days of our life.
  15. Comfort us again now after the time that thou hast plagued us; *
    and for the years wherein we have suffered adversity.
  16. Show thy servants thy work, *
    and their children thy glory.
  17. And the glorious majesty of the Lord our God be upon us: *
    prosper thou the work of our hands upon us; O prosper thou our handy-work.
