I met up with an old friend
who asked me in to dine,
And meet his agéd mother
to talk and pass the time;
In her eyes a hue still sparkled
though her hair had long turned grey,
With a voice so soft and gentle,
these words to me did say.

I have lived a good life,
I'm happy though I'm old,
You never turn the pages back
in life's great storybook;
And though my hair is silver now,
and my step is slow,
I thank my God that He should
let me live till I am old.

He longed to slow the hands of time
and hold back on the years,
To change all frowns to laughter
and dry up all our tears;
But these are just the bad seeds
of the mortals that we are,
For they're a part of living,
I'm so happy I could care.

I'm satisfied I cannot change
one minute of the past,
I'm thankful that I had the time
to make the memories last;
And though my hair is silver now,
and my step is slow,
I thank my God that He has
let me live till I am old.

I have lived a good life,
I'm happy though I'm old,
You never turn the pages back
in life's great storybook;
And though my hair is silver now,
and my step is slow,
I thank my God that He should
let me live till I am old.
I thank my God that He has
let me live till I am old.
