Psalm 90 : When you need serious perspective.

Open Now Our Hearts To Wisdom

tune: Beach Spring

source text: Psalm 90

 

Open now our hearts to wisdom

     Keep us numbering our days

Generations long behind us

     Honored you, their dwelling place

As a blink our life’s duration

     Just a dream of yesterday

Dust to dust our treasured lifespans

     Age to age your perfect grace

 

We are children of our planet

     We will all be quickly gone

Though we thrive with breath and heartbeat

     Can we ever know how long

Open now our hearts to wisdom

     Keep us numbering our days

Gladly mindful of eternity

     Let us live a holy pace

 

You have been our sanctuary,

     Faithful God, from age to age

Open now our hearts to wisdom

     Keep us numbering our days 

You a haven for our forebears

     With the promise of your grace

Of our lives, God, make a legacy

     For our children’s children’s faith
