on my birthday

wildflowersFrom Psalm 39:

O LORD, make me know my end
and what is the measure of my days;
let me know how fleeting I am!

Behold, you have made my days a few
handbreadths,
and my lifetime is as nothing before you.
Surely all mankind stands as a mere
breath!

Surely a man goes about as a shadow!
Surely for nothing they are in turmoil;
man heaps up wealth and does not
know who will gather!

And now, O Lord, for what do I wait?
My hope is in you.
