“The Lord has made me weak while I am still young;
he has shortened my life.
O God, do not take me away now
before I grow old.
O Lord you live forever;
long ago you created the earth,
and with your own hands you
made the heavens.
They will disappear, but you will
they will all wear out like
You will discard them like clothes,
and they will vanish.
But you are always the same,
and your life never ends.
Our children will live in safety
and under your protection
their descendants will be secure.”
– Psalm 102: 23-28
