Ecclesiastes 3 14-15

14I knew that everything that God does, it will be forever.
To it there is nothing to add,
and from it, there’s nothing to take away.

God has acted so they live in awe before him.

15What has happened, already is,
and that which is to happen, has already happened.
And God seeks out what has been driven away

Keep us, O Lord, while we tarry on this earth,
in a serious seeking after thee,
and in an affectionate walking with thee,
every day of our lives;
that when thou comest,
we may be found not hiding our talent,
nor yet asleep with our lamp unfurnished,
but waiting and longing for our Lord,
our glorious King, for ever and ever.

Richard Baxter (1615-1691)
