Little Old Lady

Little Old Lady

A little old lady is she,
Losing some of life’s abilities.
Her mind is in working order.
She doesn’t drive the car on sidewalks
Nor park it under great big trees.

She knows all her grandchildren’s names,
Even parents’ anniversaries.
Things slip her mind just now and then.
She has to think a little longer.
Just wait - she’ll remember all these.  

Privileged to program her mind
With inspired messages from God’s Word,
Some read each day, some memorized.
She thinks of where she’d go if she could -
Where Jesus walked - His voice was heard.

Soon she’ll see Him - then face to face.
All troubles and tears will be no more.
She’ll sing with all the blood-washed throng -
All dressed in white - a glorious song.
Sinless - worship Christ evermore!
