3.) 

Thou sweepest men away, vain in their glory,

For they are like a fleeting dream before Thee,

Like grass which springs up in the early morning,

Like flowers for a while the earth adorning

That with the dawn unfold on hill and glade:

By evening time they wither and they fade.

 

 
4.) 

For we are all consumed by Thy great anger,

And in dismay we've seen Thy fury linger.

Thou settest our iniquities before Thee.

Thy light reveals our secret sins most surely,

For in Thy wrath do all our days go by;

Our years come to their ending with a sigh.

 

5.) 

Three score and ten are all the years allowed us,

And fourscore when Thou hast with strength endowed us.

Soon they are gone, their best is toil and trouble.

We fly away, our labours worthless stubble.

Who understands the power of Thy wrath,

When Thy great vengeance meets us on our path?

 

 
6.) 

Who understands the woes of all who fear Thee?

Why burns Thy wrath against those who revere Thee?

We pass our years in fear and fitful slumber;

Teach us that we our span of days may number,

So that our hearts gain wisdom. LORD, return!

How long? Have pity! For Thy love we yearn.

 

 
7.) 

LORD, in the morning come and satisfy us,

With steadfast love and with Thy blessings ply us

So that we may rejoice and sing with gladness

As many days as we have mourned in sadness,

As many years as evil we have seen,

That after grief we times of joy may glean.

 


8.) 

Show forth Thy work to all who serve before Thee,

And to Thy children show Thy power and glory.

May He, the LORD, our gracious God and Saviour,

Shed on us all the riches of His favour.

Establish Thou the labours of our hand;

Establish them, that to Thy praise they stand.
