Geezer Worship (A Heart that Perseveres)

Every day for all these years
They’ve traded in their tears and fears
For long sustaining providence
And their profane heart repents
This is the beauty of wisdom
In the heart that perseveres.

Moment by moment, day after day
Week after week they watch and pray
Multiplied minutes return
A heart that still burns year by year
This is the beauty of faithfulness
In the heart that perseveres.

The head now is wizened, the brow furrowed deep
Draws near the horizon, yet still the heart leaps
The memories are sweeter, the countenance blessed
Displaying the peace of a heart that has confessed.
Conforming to the likeness of the Lord of righteousness!

Here is the life that waits upon the Lord
On eagles wings lifted- a life that’s outpoured
They live long and prosper
They that humbly draw near
Here is the glory of Jesus
In the heart that perseveres.
