Growing Old

God keep my heart attuned to laughter
When youth is done.
When all the days are suddenly gray days
Coming after sun.
God keep me from bitterness and grieving
And self pity.
When life seems over, full of pain and cold,
A duty bound city.
Let my love and joy always be found in You
Searching not for youth.
But always reading from Your holy word
Daily gleanings of truth.
God remind me I am still within Your fold
My soul will not be sold.
God keep me always loving and believing
As I grow old.
