November 1988


I have once been young

I am growing older

my days have been filled

with the ways of man

yet in all my steps away

God remained

to whom else could I return

my God has never left me

the Almighty God hears my prayers

lifting me from my shame

He is faithful to the righteous

He upholds them in temptation

He redeems them from their sin

who is a God like my God

who accepts me in all my ways

who but God accepts my prayers

forgiving me

yet still blessing me greatly

who but God shows mercy

to me who is but dust
