2 That the aged men be sober, grave, temperate,
sound in faith, in charity, in patience.
3 The aged women likewise,
that they be in behaviour as becometh holiness,
not false accusers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things
Titus 2:2-3 KJV
As much as you despise it you must age,
Until one day you feel the weight of years,
But with the wrinkles brings the knowing sage,
Experienced in laughter, calm and tears.
If you should ever act your age it’s now,
For younger eyes are looking up to you.
Let sober living shine upon your brow,
And all the words you say be sound and true.
You have a grave responsibility
To be the light of Christ in faith and love.
Endure the world each day more patiently,
And show us how to pray to God above.
To all the aged men and women saints,
Spend all your time in praise and not complaints.
