Help with text please

Hi Folks,
I am creating a polyphonic setting of a text for S.A.T.B. a cappella choir.
The original English text is

"The Past provides; we give thanks.
The present lives; we give thanks.
The future has hope; we give thanks."

The Latin translation that I am working with is,

"In praeteritis cavetur; gratias agimus.
In vitae nunc; gratias agimus.
Spes in futuro; gratias agimus."

Any help will be greatly appreciated.
Robert B

Τις βλέπει ἐμὸν τὸν οἰκεῖον ἱππομύρμηκα;

How can I get a hold of Jeff?


I read all the rules and posted a question on behalf of my biology group in the Learn Latin forum instead of a "Hello" style post on the Open Board. I am trying to get a hold of Jeff to ask when it might show up, but the email posted on the Contact doesn't work. Thanksgiving holiday, there might be a lot of people coming on to hang out, we really want to get ...

I have decided to expand my education into areas of which I know nothing about, such as ...

Losing Facility in Languages?

How long do you find it takes for you to lose some ability in the languages you know? if at all? I'm finding this lately, in little bits here and there across my entire list of languages. Hesitancy when speaking in French, briefly forgetting an important German verb when writing something, an inability to understand old notes in Sumerian or Akkadian when I try to pick them up again and so on.

It is deeply ...

Practicing Composition

Ego et mea amica suum carrum agemus hac nocte. Praeterimus casu rubrum luxem, et alius carrus nos verberat. Nemo vulnerati sunt; sed permoti sumus. Res cita et aspra fuit.
