Psalm 90. Domine, refugium.

From the Book of Divine Worship - The Psalter or Psalms of David - Contemporary - Eighteenth Day - Morning Prayer.
  1. Lord, you have been our refuge *
    from one generation to another.
  2. Before the mountains were brought forth, or the land and the earth were born, *
    from age to age you are God.
  3. You turn us back to the dust and say, *
    Go back, O child of earth.
  4. For a thousand years in your sight are like yesterday when it is past *
    and like a watch in the night.
  5. You sweep us away like a dream; *
    we 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 because of your wrathful indignation.
  8. Our iniquities you have set before you, *
    and our secret sins in the light of your countenance.
  9. When you are angry, all our days are gone; *
    we bring our years to an end like a sigh.
  10. The span of our life is seventy years, perhaps in strength even eighty; *
    yet the sum of them is but labor and sorrow, for they pass away quickly and we are gone.
  11. Who regards the power of your wrath? *
    who rightly fears your indignation?
  12. So teach us to number our days *
    that we may apply our hearts to wisdom.
  13. Return, O Lord; how long will you tarry? *
    be gracious to your servants.
  14. Satisfy us by your loving-kindness in the morning; *
    so shall we rejoice and be glad all the days of our life.
  15. Make us glad by the measure of the days that you afflicted us *
    and the years in which we suffered adversity.
  16. Show your servants your works *
    and your splendor to their children.
  17. May the graciousness of the Lord our God be upon us; *
    prosper the work of our hands; prosper our handiwork.
