- So the name of the LORD will be declared in Zion and his praise in Jerusalem
- when the peoples and the kingdoms assemble to worship the LORD.
- In the course of my life he broke my strength; he cut short my days.
- So I said: "Do not take me away, O my God, in the midst of my days; your years go on through all generations.
- In the beginning you laid the foundations of the earth, and the heavens are the work of your hands.
- That men may tell of the name of the LORD in Zion And His praise in Jerusalem,
- When the peoples are gathered together, And the kingdoms, to serve the LORD.
- He has weakened my strength in the way; He has shortened my days.
- I say, "O my God, do not take me away in the midst of my days, Your years are throughout all generations.
- "Of old You founded the earth, And the heavens are the work of Your hands.
