Here is a paraphrase of some sobering words taken from Psalm 90

RETURN TO THE DUST

Return to the dust
O sons of men
Return to the dust
From whence you came
Return to the dust
O sons of men
Mother earth waits
To receive you again
To receive you again

Lord You have been our dwelling place
Through the raging of the storm
A solace in the land of gloom
When the garment of hope has been torn
Teach us to number the days of our life
To seek wisdom with all of our heart
Give us joy and relief in return for the years
Of sorrow spent hid from Your sight

Lord of the Ages, Timeless One
Who can recount all Your days?
You never grow old with the passing of time
You're immune to the onslaught of years
So teach us to number the days of our life
To seek wisdom with all of our heart
Give us joy and relief in return for the years
Of sorrow spent hid from Your sight

In life or in death
May the beauty of God
As a garment
Encircle our lives
Man is a flower
In the morning he blooms
In the evening
He withers and dies

Return to the dust
O sons of men
Return to the dust
From whence you came
Return to the dust
O sons of men
Mother earth waits
To caress you again
To caress you again
