Psalter 274

Verse 1
Before my journey is complete
My vigor fails, my years decline;
My God, O spare me, I entreat;
The days of life are wholly Thine.

Verse 2
O cut not short my life's brief day,
O Thou Whose years eternal run,
Thou Who didst earth's foundations lay,
Creator of the stars and sun.

Verse 3
The earth and heav'ns shall pass away,
Like vesture worn and laid aside,
But changeless Thou shalt live for aye,
They years forever shall abide.

Verse 4
Thy servants' children shall remain
For evermore before Thy face;
Enduring honor they shall gain,
Established ever in Thy grace.
