for the rest of my years.

the LORD in the land of the living;
I shall look on man no more
among the inhabitants of the world.

like a shepherd’s tent;
like a weaver I have rolled up my life;
he cuts me off from the loom;
from day to night you bring me to an end;

like a lion he breaks all my bones;
from day to night you bring me to an end.

but in love you have delivered my life
from the pit of destruction,
for you have cast all my sins
behind your back.

death does not praise you;
those who go down to the pit do not hope

as I do this day;
the father makes known to the children

all the days of our lives,
at the house of the LORD.
