What is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away.
My days are swifter than a post: they flee away, they see no good. They are passed away as the swift ships: as the eagle that hasteth to the prey. — Thou carriest them away as with a flood; they are as a sleep ... in the morning they are like grass which groweth up. In the morning it flourisheth, and groweth up: in the evening it is cut down, and withereth. — Man that is born of a woman is of few days, and full of trouble. He cometh forth like a flower, and is cut down.
The world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever. — They shall perish, but thou shalt endure: yea, all of them shall wax old like a garment; as a vesture shalt thou change them, and they shall be changed: but thou art the same, and thy years shall have no end. — Jesus Christ, the same yesterday, and today, and forever.

I will sing with the spirit, and I will sing with the understanding also.
Be filled with the Spirit, speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord. — Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and ad-monishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.
My mouth shall speak the praise of the Lord: and let all flesh bless his holy name for ever and ever.
Praise ye the Lord: for it is good to sing praises unto our God; for it is pleasant; and praise is comely. Sing unto the Lord with thanksgiving; sing praise upon the harp unto our God.
I heard a voice from heaven, as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of a great thunder; and I heard the voice of harpers harping with their harps.
I COR. 14:15. Eph. 5:18,19. ‑Col. 3:16. Psa. 145:21. Psa. 147:1,7. Rev. 14:2.
