Lord, thou hast been our refuge from one generation to another,
Before the mountains were brought forth,
or ever the earth and the world were made,
thou art God from everlasting, and world without end.
Again thou sayest Come again, ye children of men.
seeing that is past as a watch in the night.
And fade away, way suddenly like the grass.
But in the Ev'ning it is cut down, dried up, and withered.
Thou hast set our misdeeds before thee
and our secret sins in thy light of the countenance.
The days of our age are threescore years and ten,
and tho' men be so strong that they come to fourscore years,
yet is their strength then but labor and sorrow,
so soon passeth it away, and we are gone.
So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts, unto wisdom.

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost;
As it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be, world without end,
