[Diocese of Mauritius - Indian Ocean] Psa 90:1 O Lord, you have always been our home.
Psa 90:2 Before you created the hills or brought the world into being, you were eternally God, and will be God forever.
Psa 90:3 You tell us to return to what we were; you change us back to dust.
Psa 90:4 A thousand years to you are like one day; they are like yesterday, already gone, like a short hour in the night.
Psa 90:5 You carry us away like a flood; we last no longer than a dream. We are like weeds that sprout in the morning,
Psa 90:6 that grow and burst into bloom, then dry up and die in the evening.
Psa 90:7 We are destroyed by your anger; we are terrified by your fury.
Psa 90:8 You place our sins before you, our secret sins where you can see them.
Psa 90:9 Our life is cut short by your anger; it fades away like a whisper.
Psa 90:10 Seventy years is all we have--- eighty years, if we are strong; yet all they bring us is trouble and sorrow; life is soon over, and we are gone.
Psa 90:11 Who has felt the full power of your anger? Who knows what fear your fury can bring?
Psa 90:12 Teach us how short our life is, so that we may become wise.
