When I was young, my Mother said
There will come times when things you’ll dread.

Please give your life to Jesus now.
Ask Him to guide and show you how.
He gave joy as sins I confessed ,
Made that decision that He blessed.

I’m young and vital then it seems
Just full of plans and all my dreams.

Life got busy - lived day to day -
Knew what I wanted - my own way.

There were so many things to do.
‘Twas mostly my plans - Jesus knew.

One day life hit me in the face
Since I’d traveled at such a pace.

Now I’m “all-of-a-sudden” old.
It happens that way I’ve been told. 

Now time is spent in God’s own Word
Thanking and praying.  I know I’m heard.

He sends blessings - I wait on Him.
He fills my cup beyond the brim!
