O God, your constant care and love
are shed upon us from above,
throughout our lives in every stage,
from infancy to later age.
We thank you, Lord, for dreams of youth,
for wisdom leading on to truth,
for memories gathered through the years,
and faith that grows from joy to tears.
All time is yours, O Lord, to give;
may we, in all the years we live,
find every day of life is new,
a celebration, Lord, with you.
Let not the passing of the years
rob us of joy, nor cause us fears,
and give us faith, O Lord, that we
may live with you, eternally.
