Written for Joergen Dal’s 87th birthday Feb. 22, 1944

Old age doth have its troubles,
Its weakness, aches and pains.
But they are but as bubbles
Compared to all the gains
That faith in Christ will give us
At life’s hard journey’s end,
For there He will revceive us
In glory. We depend
On Him, to draw us nearer
Our heavenly home above
Where He becomes still dearer
To us in perfect love.

Gunerius C. Lee 1871-1943
