One More Hill
As I climb just one more hill
My youth a long time passed.
The kids are gone, the house is still.
Oh the time, it went so fast.
Now I sit and talk with God
And reminisce of yesterday.
I think of all the paths we’ve trod,
And it takes my breath away.
I recall my firstborns smile,
And I heard her first cry.
As God and I sit for awhile,
It brings tears of joy to my eyes.
God’s in my life hand in hand,
In my joy and my heartache too.
Though I didn’t always understand
He’s faithful to see me through.
He was with me in my youth,
It’s true, that I cannot deny.
He spoke of His love and truth,
And He’ll be with me when I die.
