Psalm: 89
Iconography: A young man stands on the left holding two sprouting branches. In the morning he shall pass away like grass: in the morning he shall flourish and pass away. Facing him is a stooped old man holding a crutch and another branch. And in the evening he shall fall grow dry and wither.
