Remember how short my life is, how empty and futile this human existence!
No one can live forever; all will die. No one can escape the power of the grave. Interlude
Lord, where is your unfailing love? You promised it to David with a faithful pledge.
Consider, Lord, how your servants are disgraced! I carry in my heart the insults of so many people.
Your enemies have mocked me, O LORD; they mock the one you anointed as king.
Blessed be the LORD forever! Amen and amen!
