Psalm 90:14-17 AMP
14 O satisfy us with Your mercy and loving-kindness in the morning [now, before we are older], that we may rejoice and be glad all our days.

From NetBible Ps 90:14

15 Make us glad in proportion to the days in which You have afflicted us and to the years in which we have suffered evil. 16 Let Your work [the signs of Your power] be revealed to Your servants, and Your [glorious] majesty to their children. 17 And let the beauty and delightfulness and favor of the Lord our God be upon us; confirm and establish the work of our hands—yes, the work of our hands, confirm and establish it.
