Lord, I am sagging, stooping, stiffening
Need your help to just get on.
“As thy days so shall thy strength be.”
Just what I need to lean upon!
Look, you will see it, that bright city
Do not need volts or watts or amps.
It is brightness we will get used to
Never need to light the lamps.
Milk the cows, feed the horse,
Get a move on! Shake a leg!
Them that do not work do not eat either
Out on the street, learn to beg!
Do not have to come to attention or
Sleep in water all night long!
Running, dodging twanging bullets
Listening to their fearsome song!
Now another song I am hearing
As I near that final shore.
Lovely blending harmonizing
Think I have heard that blend before!
This I will hear in heaven when
My three children, one rare moment,
Repeat performance once again!
