Numbering Our Days

  Thou hast set our iniquities,
Lord, before Thy face;
E’en our secret hidden sins,
Light of Thy countenance traced.
For in Thine o’erflowing wrath
Have our days wholly gone by;
And our years come to an end
Like a whispered sigh.
  Oh, the days of all our years are seventy,
Or, if due to strength, they eighty be;
Yet what’s their pride and boast?
Toil and sorrow and woe.
All soon will fade;
And we, too, fly away.
  Teach us then to number our days,
Heart of wisdom to obtain.
O Lord, teach us then to number our days,
Heart of wisdom to gain.
Satisfy us, Lord, in the morn
With lovingkindness outpoured,
That a joyful ringing shout may arise
All the days of our life.
Lord, according to all the days
That we afflictions have faced,
And to the years wherein evil we’ve seen,
Make us glad in Thee,
Make us glad in Thee.

Colors will fade, black hair turns to white, beautiful skin soon wrinkled, teeth becomes incomplete, eyes will lost its sight and life comes to an end.

Everything has a turning point, an end point, and nothing will last except the eternal life of God.

Saints! Let us learn how to number our days, treasuring and spending more time with the Lord, not to the world.

Treasuring the Lord is our most valuable time on earth!

All will truly fade and will fly away. Our years, our wealth, our possession, everything that we attained, all these things will surely come to an end. Lord, may You help us see Your Supreme Preciousness for us to be able to change our valuation. Yes Lord, we sometimes become blinded from the things that we have seen and to the things that we are attracted. Thank the Lord for this very refreshing hymn! Lord, may You teach us to number our days so that we may gain a heart of wisdom. Above all, You are very Precious from all the temporary things that we have seen. We love You Lord Jesus!
