A voice says, “Cry out!”
    And I said, “What shall I cry?”
All people are grass,
    their constancy is like the flower of the field.

The grass withers, the flower fades;
    but the word of our God will stand forever.

The grass withers and the flowers(E) fall,
    but the word(F) of our God endures(G) forever.(H)
