R.) Give success to the work of our hands, O Lord.
Before the mountains were born or the earth or the world brought forth, you are God, without beginning or end. (R.)
You turn men back to dust and say: “Go back, sons of men.” To your eyes a thousand years are like yesterday, come and gone, no more than a watch in the night. (R.)
Make us know the shortness of our life that we may gain wisdom of heart. Lord, relent! Is your anger for ever? Show pity to your servants. (R.)
In the morning, fill us with your love; we shall exult and rejoice all our days. Show forth your work to your servants; let your glory shine on their children. (R.)
