Aged Yet Youthful

aged yet youthful.fw

Clasped hands

Aging and frail

Lips moving slowly…thin and wrinkled

Quivering limbs

Discolored teeth

This the human eyes could see

Knees on the cold hard ground

Grey eyelashes

Scanty afro curls

Aging and tired

Praying but shaky

This the human eyes could see

Yet his heart was young

His spirit alive

Vibrant and yearning for Christ

In love and joyful in Christ

Singing sweet songs

Swaying to the rhythm in his heart

He was old and wrinkled to the world

Oh yes…

But in Christ he was a new creature

Vibrant and young at heart

Learning mysteries and uncovering wisdom in the Word

Aged he was to the world

But youthful he was in Christ
