Whose life must fade like the fields.
From the earth he is born and to earth returns.
Put your trust in the Lord.

Then in vain do the builders labor.
                                 
And in vain does the 
                     Eb        Cm  Cm/Bb
watchman stand his guard,

If the Lord           is not his help,
G        Cm  F/A              Bb
If the Lord     is not his help.
