That Old Front Porch Swing

Choose you this day whom ye will
serve; ....but as for me and my
house, we will serve the LORD.
Joshua 24:15




When I was but a baby,
To my mama I'd cling
As she sat and rocked me,
On that old front porch swing.

While I was a young child,
Just a wee little thing,
I'd rock all my dollies,
On that old front porch swing.

Then as I got a bit older,
How my heart would sing,
As I sat with my beau,
On that old front porch swing.

And when I had my own babes,
Old lullabyes I'd sing,
As I rocked them to sleep
On that old front porch swing.

Then my babes all grew up,
And each one spread their wings,
But their dad and I still sit
On that old front porch swing.

Now the grandchildren come,
And their young voices ring,
"Grandma, come and rock us
On that old front porch swing."

Yes, life goes full circle,
And what joys life can bring:
There's a lifetime of love
On that old front porch swing.
