…Lord, where do I put my hope?
My only hope is in you.
Exalt the LORD our God,
and worship at his holy mountain in Jerusalem,
for the LORD our God is holy!
“LORD, remind me how brief my time on earth will be
Remind me that my days are numbered—
how fleeting my life is.
You have made my life no longer than the width of my hand.
My entire lifetime is just a moment to you;
at best, each of us is but a breath.”
Your unfailing love, O LORD, is as vast as the heavens;
your faithfulness reaches beyond the clouds.
Taste and see that the LORD is good.
Oh, the joys of those who take refuge in him!
The LORD is close to the brokenhearted;
he rescues those whose spirits are crushed.
The LORD merely spoke,
and the heavens were created.
He breathed the word,
and all the stars were born.
He assigned the sea its boundaries
and locked the oceans in vast reservoirs.
For the angel of the LORD is a guard;
he surrounds and defends all who fear him.
Be still in the presence of the LORD,
and wait patiently for him to act.
