Beauty in Gray-Headedness

(Proverbs 16:31)

  1. 1. Here with us are aged ones,

    Those whose youth has passed.

    Here among us they endure;

    Still they’re holding fast.

    Loss of strength besets them all;

    Loss of mates for some.

    Father, please confirm their faith

    In the life to come.

    (CHORUS)

    Father, you remember

    How in faith they’ve run.

    Give them your assurance;

    May they hear, “Well done!”

  2. 2. Splendid is gray-headedness

    Found in ways of right.

    Beautiful are faithful ones

    In Jehovah’s sight.

    May we always recognize

    They were once young too.

    Loyally they gave their best

    When their strength was new.

    (CHORUS)

    Father, you remember

    How in faith they’ve run.

    Give them your assurance;

    May they hear, “Well done!”
