From Psalm 90


thou hast been
our dwelling place
in all generations.

Before the mountains
were brought forth,
or ever thou hadst formed
the earth and the world,

even from everlasting to everlasting,

thou art God.

* * *

And let the beauty of the Lord our God
be upon us: and establish thou
the work of our hands upon us;
yea the work of our hands
establish thou it.

Psalm 90: Verses 1-2, 17
(the beginning and end of this Psalm)
King James Version

I arranged the verses into this poetic form.
