Aged Yet Youthful

Clasped hands
Aging and frail
Lips moving slowly…thin and wrinkled
Quivering limbs
Discolored teeth
This the human eyes could see

Knees on the cold hard ground
Grey eyelashes
Scanty afro curls
Aging and tired
Praying but shaky
This the human eyes could see

Yet his heart was young
His spirit alive
Vibrant and yearning for Christ
In love and joyful in Christ
Singing sweet songs
Swaying to the rhythm in his heart
He was old and wrinkled to the world
Oh yes…
But in Christ he was a new creature
Vibrant and young at heart
Learning mysteries and uncovering wisdom in the Word
Aged he was to the world
But youthful he was in Christ
