Who shepherds us at every stage,
Through youth, maturity, and age.

To storm the citadels of wrong;
In care for others taught us how
God's true community must grow.

3 Who bids us never lose our zest,
Though age is urging us to rest,
But proves to us that we have still
A work to do, a place to fill.
