1Master, you have been our home forever and ever. 2God, you were God before the mountains were born and the earth and the world were made. God, you have always been, and you will always be, God! 3You bring people into this world. And you change them into dust again. 4To you, a thousand years is like yesterday, like last night. 5You sweep us away. Our life is like a dream, and in the morning, we are gone. We are like grass. 6In the morning the grass grows, and in the evening it is dry and dying. 7˻God,˼ your anger could destroys us. Your anger scares us! 8You know about all our sins. You see every one of our secret sins. 9Your anger can end our life. Our lives fade away like a whisper. 10We live maybe 70 years. And if we are strong, maybe 80 years. Our lives are filled with hard work and pain. Then suddenly, our lives are finished! And we fly away. 11No person really knows the full power of your anger, God. But God, our fear and respect for you is as great as your anger. 12Teach us how short our lives really are, so we can become really wise. 13Lord, always come back to us. Be kind to your servants. 14Fill us with your love every morning. Let us be happy and enjoy our lives. 15You gave us much sadness and troubles in our lives. Now make us happy. 16Let your servants see the wonderful things you can do for them. And let their children see your glory. 17May our God and Master be kind to us. May everything we do provide for us, and may God provide everything we do.
