Number our days

Strength will bring eighty weighty years to wait upon us

Even though the days of our lives are seventy years, just

Teach us to number our days

And give us a heart of wisdom we pray

You are my sanctuary and my fort;

I rest under your wings oh Lord

The horror by night shall not stroke me,

The arrow by day will not spike thee

A thousand to my left may fall

And ten thousand by right

In the heat of the brawl

And pestilences in sight

No evil, no plagues will come near to you

Devastations and arrows will all be miscued

Your eyes shall see the reward of the impious

They stand in fear and are anxious

His guardian angels take charge over you; they stand up for you,

Not to dash your foot against a rock or a few

Upon the lion and the cobra you shall trample

Because of your love he will deliver you on ample

Because you know his name

A long life and salvation will be yours to claim!

Selah, think about it
