In the sun-splashed shadows of a majestic tree,
Beneath its branches sits my love and me;
Only this morning your beauty did unfold,
Your hair now is silver, then it was gold.
Life's fleeting moments are passing by,
Like flashes of lighting before our eyes;
Lets drink this cup until it's emptied of time,
How swiftly it flies across your face of mine.
The sun will come up to a new face at dawn,
And linger with me my whole life long;
For this moment in time will eternally be,
Nearer to God, my God to be.
