TO MY FRIEND
Threescore, sixty, could this be true?
Has this really happened to you?
Threescore, sixty, how can this be?
Soon threescore will catch up with me!
All those years, where did they all go?
How many left, not ours to know.
Threescore and ten, or maybe more.
Each day closer to heaven’s shore.
Trusting Jesus, through all life’s trials,
Kept safe from the enemy’s wiles.
Trusting God, the rest of my days,
Oh sweet peace of knowing His ways.
Youth imagines that life won’t cease.
Youth seeks this world for joy and peace.
Age and wisdom see life will end.
While there’s still time, seek God my friend.
