You, indeed, have made my days short in length,
and my life span as nothing in Your sight.
Yes, every mortal man is only a vapor. Selah.
I waited patiently for the Lord,
and He turned to me and heard my cry for help.
He brought me up from a desolate pit,
out of the muddy clay,
and set my feet on a rock,
making my steps secure.
He put a new song in my mouth,
a hymn of praise to our God.
Many will see and fear,
and put their trust in the Lord.
I delight to do Your will, my God;
Your instruction resides within me.
Let all who seek You rejoice and be glad in You;
let those who love Your salvation continually say,
"The Lord is great!"
May the Lord, the God of Israel, be praised
from everlasting to everlasting.
Amen and amen.
(Psa. 39:5, 40:1-3, 8,16, 41:13)
My life is so very short
compared to eternity,
and I am so very weak
compared to omnipotence --
yet You care for me
and instruct me.
