Forever Young – The Tenors

As my birthday has been approaching, I’ve been thinking a lot about the music I’ve been listening to recently, and thinking about what song I would choose to put on the blog. When this song came on last weekend, I knew it was the one. “Forever Young” was originally recorded by Bob Dylan, but has been redone by the group formerly known as The Canadian Tenors. It’s a BEAUTIFUL song, and I think speaks a lot to a new chapter in my life. It’s incredible to look back at where I was for my birthday last year — still trying to make friends, still trying to settle in to a new life. I have no doubt though that this year will be, and already is, completely different. I truly feel like I will be “forever young”…maybe one of those little old ladies at 85 who still wants to go exploring, try new things, travel new places. Right now though at 25, I can say that I’m already excited for all the trips, new adventures, and excitement that’s being planned for this year. I can’t wait! My favorite lyrics of this song are these: “May your heart always be joyful, your song always be sung, and may you stay forever young.” I pray the lyrics of this song for my life as I begin this new year…

Forever Young – The Tenors
May God bless and keep you always
May your wishes all come true
May you always do for others
Let others do for you
May you build a ladder to the sky
Climb on every rung
And may you stay forever young.

May you grow up to be righteous
May you grow up to be true
May you always know the truth
And see the light surrounding you
May you always be courageous
Stand upright and be strong
And may you stay forever young.

Chorus:
Forever young
Forever young
May you stay forever.

May your hands always be busy
May your feet always be swift
May you have a strong foundations
When the winds of changes shift
May your heart always be joyful
Your song always be sung
And may you stay forever young. Chorus

May God bless and keep you always
May your wishes all come true
And may you stay
Forever young.
