Ancient of days

 

The oldest thing we earthly know,

Was once as young as falling snow.

Ancient hills were once fresh dirt;

Your coat was once a lone, sheep’s “shirt.”

All we know had a launching day.

A point beyond which it had no sway.

All except for our glorious, great God,

He alone precedes sky, sea, and sod.

Man’s walk is short, at the longest length.

His way is weak, at its strongest strength.

Birth and schooling, and marriage and death

Breeze by.  We run, are soon out of breath,

What looked so distant when we were young,

(Our road was untried, our song, unsung)

Clambers up, levels, clatters down hill.

Take the walks, pop vitamins at will

Age still comes.  No matter how you “feel,”

Gray hair, wrinkles, glasses are all real.

But don’t worry.  Yield to God your ways,

He’s with us.  He’s the Ancient of Days.

You’re old?  “It’s in your head,”

Methuselah might have said,

Who lived nine centuries, sixty-nine.

Your age is a fraction of that line.

His age, though quite large to us,

Was neither a minus nor a plus

To God, our illustrious Ancient of Days,

Who’s lived forever, yet is young – always.
