Psalm 89

I will sing of the LORD's great love forever.
With my mouth I will make your faithfulness known
for generations to come.
I will declare that your love stands firm forever,
and that you established your faithfulness in heaven itself.

O LORD God Almighty, who is like you?
You are mighty, O LORD.
Your faithfulness surrounds you.
You rule over the surging sea.
When its waves mount up, you still them.

The heavens are yours, and yours also the earth.
You founded the world and all that is in it.
You created the north and the south.
Your arm is endued with power.
Your right hand is strong and exalted.

Righteousness and mercy are your foundation.
Love and faithfulness go before you.
Blessed are those who have learned to acclaim you,
who walk in the light of your presence, O LORD.

They rejoice in your name all day long.
They exult in your righteousness.
For you are their glory and strength,
and by your favor you exalt them.

Remember how fleeting is my life.
What man can live and not see death,
or save himself from the power of the grave?

Praise be to the LORD forever!
