Psalm90-1-2

1 Lord, you have been our dwelling place
    throughout all generations.
2 Before the mountains were born
    or you brought forth the whole world,
    from everlasting to everlasting you are God. NIV

 

This psalm is attributed to Moses. It is a prayer that asks God to teach people how to "make the most" of the time we have in our lives on this earth.
