1 Lord, you have been our dwelling place
in all generations.
2 Before the mountains were brought forth,
or ever you had formed the earth and the world,
from everlasting to everlasting you are God.
3 You turn us back to dust,
and say, “Turn back, you mortals.”
4 For a thousand years in your sight
are like yesterday when it is past,
or like a watch in the night.
5 You sweep them away; they are like a dream,
like grass that is renewed in the morning;
6 in the morning it flourishes and is renewed;
in the evening it fades and withers.
God of all generations, you are our dwelling place and our peace. When the world is far too busy, when our burdens feel heavy and overwhelming, remind us of your wisdom and love. This weekend, help us to rest in your peace. Remind us of our presence that extends from age to age. Where our worries feel overwhelming, ground us in the truth that you are steady and present in the midst of all things. Amen.
