I'm starting a new life,
A new phase of a new life,
New beginnings, no craze:
The rest of my life in Christ.
Many times my life was made anew
In Him Who makes all things new;
This phase is just called retirement.
Call it old age but it's part of new life.
I hope it will be a new lease on life,
Nothing I can get really excited about,
No need to get depressed about it either,
God knows how long it will last.
Jesus grants grace to live each day.
We still build on a past He shall renew.
His Covenant of Blood pours every day,
Is a fresh slate - the old made new.
