Old Man's Song

My youth is gone. My work is done.
So much I toiled for, sun to sun,
Is fading with the afternoon.
The darkness will be coming soon.

And after that? New day, I trust,
And resurrection from the dust.

So remember your Creator in the days of your youth:

Before the days of adversity come,
and the years approach when you will say,
"I have no delight in them";
before the sun and the light are darkened,
and the moon and the stars,
and the clouds return after the rain....

--Ecclesiastes 12:1-2, HCSB
