featuring the West Coast Mennonite Chamber Choir – recording available
…in the days of thy youth. Larry and Gordon played in a Christian folk-band (The Sound of Light) back in the 1970’s. This song became an anthem for the group. Why not live life to the fullest while you’re still young?
Remember thy Creator in the days of thy youth
before the evil days come, when you shall say
“I have no pleasure, no pleasure in them”.
Picture an old man on a park bench
gray felt hat down around his ear;
He’s come to realize that there’s nothing left to say
about all those waster years.
Rejoice, young man, in your youth
and do what seems right in your mind.
In the end you will stand alone
and answer to your God.
