I wonder when it was, that I stopped counting? When I decided that my grandparents need not get any older. When I suddenly froze grandmas' age in time... Talking about forever 61.

I wonder what I was doing, when I stopped counting? When the birthday celebrations started failing to register? When I began to forget that parents grow old too. "Happy 51st birthday Dad!"

I wonder if my mum, would be happy to hear, of her fountain of youth which she discovered at 50. Because for all that has happened since then, she will never get older - at least, I believe this is true.

And I wonder if I have lied, now that I'm getting older, because it's starting to be that I need to count backwards. From the year that I am, to the year I was born, and I'm confused that it exceeds 25.

So if I'm confused, how must be the confusion, for those who are older with longer to live. For I have stopped counting, and live in delusion, though I am still young - if I'm to be believed.
Old? How?
I wonder when it was...

Oh Dear Lord, how could it be!?
With outstretched hand, you reach for me
Who am I, that you should bend
Your precious hip, your hand extend

For I know not how to stray from sin
Although I try, I rarely win
My flesh rebels, to drown in shame
Yet you pardon, time and again

Oh Dear Lord, how could it be!?
With outstretched hand, you reach for me
Who am I, that you should bend
Your precious hip, your hand extend

I bow in awe of your grace
The glory of your holy face
Doth shine on me, I cannot look
And still you reach, through holy book

Oh Dear Lord, how could it be!?
With outstretched hand, you reach for me
Who am I, that you should bend
Your precious hip, your hand extend

Your Word, He heals and fills me up
Your Spirit counsels, builds me up
Your Son forgives, and frees me up
Till I'm secure, and worries stop

Oh Dear Lord, how could it be!?
With outstretched hand, you reach for me
Who am I, that you should bend
Your precious hip, your hand extend

You are the potter, I am the clay
You are the truth, You are the way
You are my hope in times of strife

Oh Dear, stay near
My Lord, my life
Oh, Dear Lord
How could it be? He'd save a wretched man like me...

When every whisper was a siren
And every sound, an alarm to my ears
He gave me silence

When every mumble pointed a finger
And every grumble, accused of my fears
He gave me solitude

And when every dream was a nightmare
And every whim, a cause to be scared
He gave me rest

Oh! What a great God He is!
Amen. Hallelujah!
Oh! What joy! What Joy!
It is to love the Lord

To celebrate without restraint
His grace unto us ward

In His presence, we are blameless
For the debts of sin were paid
When the Son of Man
For man's own sake
Descended to the grave

Oh! What joy! What Joy!
It is to follow Him

To walk the path least trodden
For the glory of our King

In His presence, we are blameless
For the debts of sin were paid
When the Son of Man
For man's own sake
Descended to the grave.

Oh! What joy! What Joy!
It is to serve in faith

Believing in a morrow where
We march amongst the saints

In His presence, we are blameless
For the debts of sin were paid
When the Son of Man
For man's own sake
Descended to the grave.
