Hymnary Friends,

We don't often ask for money.

But, before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going.

But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue.

Full Text

1 Before my journey is complete
My vigor fails, my years decline;
My God, O spare me, I entreat;
The days of life are wholly Thine.

2 O cut not short my life's brief day,
O thou Whose years eternal run,
Thou Who didst earth's foundations lay,
Creator of the stars and sun.

3 The earth and heavens shall pass away,
Like vesture worn and laid aside,
But changeless thou shalt live for aye,
Thy years forever shall abide.

4 Thy servants' children shall remain
For ever more before Thy face;
Enduring honor they shall gain,
Established ever in thy grace.

The Psalter: with responsive readings, 1912
