Lyrics

I said, ”˜I will guard my ways
”˜That I may not sin with my tongue;
”˜I will put a muzzle on my mouth
”˜As long as the wicked are with me.”
I was silent and still;
Held back, held the urge to speak;
And my anquish grew worse,
My heart grew hot within me.
While I mused, the fire burned;
Finally I spoke these words:

”˜Lord, let me know my end,
”˜And what's the measure of my days;
”˜Let me know how fleeting my life is.
”˜You have made my days temporary,
”˜and my lifetime is nothing in your sight.
”˜Surely everyone stands as a mere breath.”

Selah

Now, Lord, what do I wait for?
You're My hope, save me from my sins.
Do not make me the scorn of the fool.
I do not open my mouth,
For it's you who have done it.
Remove your stroke from me;
I'm worn down by your blows.
You rebuke, discipline me.
You consume wealth like a moth
Surely we are just a breath.

Selah

Lord, let me know my end,
And what's the measure of my days;
Let me know how fleeting my life is.
You have made my days temporary,
and my lifetime is nothing in your sight.
Surely everyone stands as a mere breath.
Surely everyone goes about like a shadow
Surely they go as a breath,
Who pile up riches,
Not knowing who will gather them.

”˜Hear my prayer, O Lord,
And give ear to my cry;
Do not hold your peace at my tears.
For I am an alien, like all who come before me.
Turn your gaze from me,
That I may smile again,
Before I depart and am no more.”

Lord, let me know my end,
And what's the measure of my days;
Let me know how fleeting my life is.
You have made my days temporary,
And my lifetime is as nothing in your sight.
Surely everyone stands as a mere breath.
