Eternal and Immortal One,
You have been our refuge from age to age.
Before the mountains were born,
Before the earth and the world came to birth,
From eternity to eternity,
You are God.
To you, a thousand years are like a yesterday
Like a watch of the night
You return us to dust
You sweep us away like a dream
We are like grass
In the morning we thrive,
But come evening,
We are withered and dry
Teach us to number our days
That we may gain your wise heart
Fill us with your faithful love
That we may sing your joyful story
Show us your wondrous deeds
That we may see your transforming power
That generations to come may see it as well
Let your favor, O God be upon us,
That the work of our hands
May bear forth your blessing
And bring your glory. Amen.
