AGELESS



Grow Your peace in me, O Lord

For mine is just a babe in arms

Wailing at every want

Always depending on others.

Grow Your peace in me, O Lord

For mine is but a child at heart

Bullied by circumstance

And led astray by folly.

Grow Your peace in me, O Lord

For mine is still a teenager

Swept away by tides of change

And floods of feeling.

Grow Your peace in me, O Lord

For mine is stuck in middle age

Complacent, self-reliant

And soaked in the world.

Grow Your peace in me, O Lord

For mine is now an old man

Shadowed by memory

And weakened by illness.

Grow Your peace in me, O Lord

For Yours is unshaken by trials

And untouched by time

Fearless, ageless, timeless.

Much love in Christ,

Claire
