Word for the Senior Citizen
Those retired but not tired
Like wine, this is your season
Why do you want to run and hide?
Vintage wine shall not waste
You will not be filed away
You shall ooze divine taste
Come and grace we pray!
Let none discard or sideline
Let none disdain or trample
Those long-lived in the Vine
With counsel rich and ample.
You have a great contribution-
An addition and multiplication
To bring to the table of neighbourhood
So rise and come out of the woods!
Let your age and experience speak
Do not throw in the towel and leave
Come counsel the young and weak
You’re a mine with a lot to give.
Let your silver hair speak wisdom
And your gentle hands steady the boat
Come and usher God’s Kingdom;
Turn into a sheep, the greedy goat.
New King James Version (NKJV)
12 The righteous shall flourish like a palm tree,
He shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon.
13 Those who are planted in the house of the LORD
Shall flourish in the courts of our God.
14 They shall still bear fruit in old age;
They shall be fresh and flourishing,
