1 You laid the foundations of earth,
the heavens were wrought by your hands;
they perish, but you will remain,
they falter, but your glory stands.

2 Like clothing the worlds shall be changed,
the skies cast away like a veil;
but you, Lord, are always the same,
your years like your words never fail.

3 Your servants shall trust in your love,
our children shall walk in your ways,
till time holds us captive no more
and paradise rings with your praise!

After Psalm 102, Michael Perry (1942 - 1996)
