What is your life? It is even a vapor that appears
for a little time and then vanishes away.
Now my days are swifter than a runner; they flee away, they see no good. They pass by like swift ships, like an eagle swooping on its prey. § You carry them away like a flood; they are like a sleep. In the morning they are like grass which grows up: in the morning it flourishes and grows up; in the evening it is cut down and withers. § Man who is born of woman is of few days and full of trouble. He comes forth like a flower and fades away.
The world is passing away, and the lust of it; but he who does the will of God abides forever. § They will perish, but You will endure; yes, they will all grow old like a garment; like a cloak You will change them, and they will be changed. But You are the same, and Your years will have no end. § Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.

I will sing with the spirit, and I will also sing with the understanding.
Be filled with the Spirit, speaking to one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord. § Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom, teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.
My mouth shall speak the praise of the Lord, and all flesh shall bless His holy name forever and ever.
Praise the Lord! For it is good to sing praises to our God; for it is pleasant, and praise is beautiful … Sing to the Lord with thanksgiving; sing praises on the harp to our God.
And I heard a voice from heaven, like the voice of many waters, and like the voice of loud thunder. And I heard the sound of harpists playing their harps.
