Fruit in Old Age



Planted in the house of the LORD,
Delivered from darkness grim,
We’ll still bring forth fruit in old age,
As our eyes are fixed on Him.
Yes, even in those latter years
When the body is so weak,
We’ll flourish in the courts of God…
As His will and way we seek.

Differing talents are bestowed
By our Heavenly Father,
And each child of His is unique,
Not one’s just like another.
He delights in souls made righteous
By the blood of His dear Son,
And He anoints for special work…
Until time on earth is done.

O what a wonderful Savior!
His Spirit in us resides,
And we’ll flourish like the palm tree,
All of the days of our lives.
It may be just a simple smile,
Or it may be something more,
But we’ll still bear His precious fruit…
Till we reach Heaven’s shore.


 “Those that be planted in the house of the LORD shall flourish
in the courts of our God. They shall still bring forth fruit in old age.”
(Ps 92:13-14)
