When I reflect upon my passing years—
Rememb’ring how this Love has carried me
Through trials, suffering, laughter, joy, tears,
Thick veils of doubt and fear shrivel and flee;
My soul is sure of hope and future days.
Yielding to You every waking moment,
I’m guided through this mysterious maze
Of life and love and lingering laments.
While to earth’s brief joys I say, “au revoir,“
You lift me over every steep and slope
And quiet me to listen now and hear
Unsung melodies of lingering hope.
Equip me now to hold Your shiftless gaze,
And solely, let You set my heart ablaze.
