What does Psalm 39:7 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Psalms 39:7

And now, Lord, what wait I for?
&c.] Look for, or expect, in this view of things? not long life, since the days of man are so short, and his age as nothing; not help from man, since he is altogether vanity; not riches and honour, since they are such poor, fading, perishing things; but the glories of another world, and the enjoyment of the Lord himself, both in this and that;

my hope [is] in thee;
