Psalms 90:1-2; 144:3-4; 102:12; 90:15

Lord, thou hast been our dwelling place in all generations.

Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever thou hadst formed the earth and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting, thou art God.

Lord, what is man, that thou takest knowledge of him! or the son of man, that thou makest account of him!

Man is like to vanity: his days are as a shadow that passeth away.

12 But thou, O Lord, shall endure for ever; and thy remembrance unto all generations.

15 Make us glad according to the days wherein thou hast afflicted us, and the years wherein we have seen evil.

Lord Thou hast been our refuge (1917) by Edward Bairstow (1874-1946)
