30 years… 3 times… Cup Overflows in Eternity!

Thanks be to God
For on the other Shore is this Ocean
Which the drop can never empty
My cup overflows living God’s Eternity!

30 years have I lived
Its gone in a flash
I couldn’t tell how
But, oh! life is short

30 years have I lived
Glories… there’s been some
Too short lived though
For me to remember

30 years have I lived
Seen my share of joys
But then time catches on
Even to the memories

30 years have I lived
Sorrows ebb and flow
With the tide of time
But then time flies

30 years have I lived
May be another 30
I will live. If blessed,
A 3rd 30 too, God knows

In the 3 30 years of life
Sorrow, joy and glory
co-mingled flow…
All but a blip in Eternity

Oh, even a 3 30 year life
Full of sorrow is but a drop
In the ocean of God’s Eternity
An Eternity complete and joyful

Thanks be to God
For on the other Shore is this Ocean
Which the drop can never empty
My cup overflows living God’s Eternity!
