We Leave with Nothing but Love

I said, "I will guard my ways,

Lest I sin with my tongue;

I will restrain my mouth with a muzzle,

While the wicked are before me.""

I was mute with silence,

I held my peace even from good;

And my sorrow was stirred up.

My heart was hot within me;

While I was musing, the fire burned.

Then I spoke with my tongue:

"LORD, make me to know my end,

And what is the measure of my days,

That I may know how frail I am.

Indeed, You have made my days as handbreadths,

And my age is as nothing before You;

Certainly every man at his best state is but vapor.

Surely every man walks about like a shadow;

Surely they busy themselves in vain;

He heaps up richerrs,

And does not know who will gather them.

"And now, Lord, what do I wait for?

My hope is in You.

Deliver me from all my transgressions;

Do not make me the reproach of the foolish.

I was mute, I did not open my mouth,

Because it was You who did it. Remove Your plague from me;

I am consumed by the blow of Your hand.

When with rebukes You correct man for iniquity,

You make his beauty melt away like a moth;

Surely evey man is vapor.

Hear my prayer, O LORD,

And give ear to my cry;

Do not be silent at my tears;

For I am a stranger with You,

A sojourner, as all my fathers were.

Remove Your gaze from me, that I may regain strength,

Before I go away and am no more."

Psalm 39
