When age has chiselled lines into your face,
When time has done its rounds with you and flown
When it seem there is little left in place
And all your dreams you've suddenly outgrown.
Then I will come to you and hold your hand,
And I will bow my life for you and yours
And I will walk with you upon the land
Until at last we've returned to the shores.
I stretch my heart to hold you tight to me
I feel your hands in mine and touch your grace
And all at once you're everything I see,
And everything I see is in your face.
When age has come and taken youth away,
Then endless love will guide us through the day,
