lyrics

BEFORE THE MOUNTAINS
Before the mountains were born
You brought forth the earth and the world

For a thousand years in your sight
Are like a day that has just gone by
Or like a guard in the night

From everlasting to everlasting
From everlasting to everlasting
You are love

You sweep men away in the sleep of death
They are like the new grass in the morning
In the morning

Though in the morning it springs up new
By evening it is dry and withered

You turn men back to dust
You turn men back to dust
Return to dust oh son of men
Return to dust

From everlasting to everlasting
From everlasting to everlasting
You are god

Teach me to number my day aright
That I might gain a heart of wisdom
Establish the work of my hands
Establish my work trough your hands
