In æternum, Domine
O Lord, your word endures for ever; *
it stands fast in heaven.
Your faithfulness remains from one generation to another; *
you have laid the foundation of the earth, and it abides.
Surely your ordinances stand firm this day, *
for all things are your servants.
If my delight had not been in your law, *
I should have perished in my affliction.
I will never forget your commandments, *
for with them you have enlivened me.
I am yours; O save me! *
For I have sought your commandments.
The ungodly lie in wait for me to destroy me, *
but I will consider your testimonies.
I see that all things come to an end, *
but your commandment has no bounds.
