46 Years

46 Years
V1: I once heard of a woman who was saved at four And was turning fifty years old Forty-six years to love and adore And to learn of his love and grace untold V2: What a thrill to know him for decades on end To have him that long as s personal friend To serve him and love him and learn more of him And forty six years of conquering sin V3: I may get to know him forty-six years Before I reach that golden shore But if I don't get that privilege here I'll know him in heaven forevermore Chorus: Oh to be saved for 46 years To know him through all the joys and the tears A special privilege to have while here To have known you as long as 46 years

This was sweet.  I am guessing you wrote this for someone specific? Smile

Glad you liked it. To be honest, I didn't. Frown I was just talking to someone and they mentioned someone they knew that had been saved since she was four and was turning fifty, and I thought, what a blessing to have know Christ for so long! I just thought it was an interesting way to look at it, so that's why I wrote this song. ;)
It makes me sad when people say, "Maybe I'll turn to Christ later." Not only for the obvious reason that they might miss their only chance, but, as the old song goes, "the longer I serve him, the sweeter he grows." It's a blessing to have a long life serving Jesus opposed to not getting to serve him here for very long.
