LOOKING UP

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!

.

.

Anniversary fiftieth!

This I will hear in heaven when

My three children, one rare moment,

Repeat performance once again!

.
