    Peace and love to those who know
    With age their insight surely grows
    The things that use to matter much
    Have lessened with a timely touch
    The things I used to hold so dear
    Did cause me toil and grief and fear
    I strove for wealth and gain for not
    My precious Savior I forgot
    My friends & family never close
    The Devil was an active host
    With casualties on every side
    Death and Destruction they all cried
    And when my life was at its end
    I asked forgiveness for my sins
    And yet my life was not a waste
    Although I lived it with much haste
    I learned my lesson in the end
    Jesus can wash away my sins
    So live your life, the best you can
    Whether a woman or a man
    The promise is three score & ten
    So smell the roses now and then
    For if the Savior is your friend
    Remember in the end you’ll win.
