Psalm 90
1Lord, you have been our refuge
from one generation to another.

2Before the mountains were brought forth,
or the land and the earth were born,
from age to age you are God.

3You turn us back to the dust and say,
“Go back, O child of earth.”

4For a thousand years in your sight are like yesterday
when it is past
and like a watch in the night.

5You sweep us away like a dream;
we fade away suddenly like the grass.

6In the morning it is green and flourishes;
in the evening it is dried up and withered.

7For we consume away in your displeasure;
we are afraid because of your wrathful indignation.

8Our iniquities you have set before you,
and our secret sins in the light of your countenance.

9When you are angry, all our days are gone;
we bring our years to an end like a sigh.

10The span of our life is seventy years,
perhaps in strength even eighty;
yet the sum of them is but labor and sorrow,
for they pass away quickly and we are gone.

11Who regards the power of your wrath?
who rightly fears your indignation?

12So teach us to number our days
that we may apply our hearts to wisdom.

13Return, O Lord; how long will you tarry?
be gracious to your servants.

14Satisfy us by your loving-kindness in the morning;
so shall we rejoice and be glad all the days of our life.

15Make us glad by the measure of the days that you afflicted us
and the years in which we suffered adversity.

16Show your servants your works
and your splendor to their children.

17May the graciousness of the Lord our God be upon us;
prosper the work of our hands;
prosper our handiwork.

A Collect for Saturdays
Almighty God, who after the creation of the world rested from all your works and sanctified a day of rest for all your creatures: Grant that we, putting away all earthly anxieties, may be duly prepared for the service of your sanctuary, and that our rest here upon earth may be a preparation for the eternal rest promised to your people in heaven; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
