Length Of Days

47 was all she got
And I’m on 74
Numbers now don’t mean a lot
We edge closer to the door

What matters is the spirit
In which we live our lives
What in truth life’s merit
All that life contrives

Wisdom in the everyday
Kindness to another
Patience where we find delay
Endurance where there’s bother

Faith brings knowledge to my door
I know where I’m going
The Lord has promised heaven and more
Joy that’s overflowing

So many deaths before we die
So many ways of losing
So many shouting ‘crucify’
The Lord he took that bruising

I look upon the crucified
I trust his way of loving
Come what may I shall not hide
His grace my hope of heaven
