TWILIGHT OF MY YEARS

When her heart was strongly beating
Near the closing of the meeting
She rose to tell her story
Like she never could before
And as she began she promised
She’d be absolutely honest
And this is the testimony that humble sister bore

In the twilight of my years
My life’s been changing gears
And sometimes I wonder just what I have to offer
Here in the twilight of my years

If I’d held onto my youth
Like I held onto the truth
I could boldly speak this sentence
I know I’ll make a difference
Here in the twilight of my years

And it’s not I don’t believe
Angels might just walk with me
Or help me learn a foreign tongue
But they haven’t yet succeeded
With the miracle I’ve pleaded for
Making someone old like me young

In the twilight of my years I believe my greatest fear
Is maybe Heaven is regretting that decision to be sending me here
In the twilight of my years
And that’s the way it’s been
Since I left my dearest kin
But I vowed I’ll serve and just hold on
But today the Spirit wisely and lovingly advised me
How I could be seeing things all wrong

Every day you can define
How you let your light so shine
And the Lord would have you know this
Your light is truly gorgeous

Here in the twilight of your years
Yes the Lord would have you know this
Your light is truly gorgeous
Here in the twilight of your years
