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
