Until I’m Gone I’m Here

I heard the call when I was young
And a mission I began;
To serve the Lord a couple years
While barely then a man.

I worked hard; I hit the streets,
Never walked when I could run.
I sought to do my duty well,
Never wished that I were done.

I witnessed others slow their pace
As completion time grew near;
But I told myself, committed firm,
“Until I’m gone I’m here!”

Now time has moved me along a bit,
On that trail, the life of man;
I’ve added on a wife and kids
And I’ve got myself a plan:

I do not know how long I’ll live
And play upon this stage,
But I’ve resolved to do much more
Than lounge around and age.

I’ll be of use! I’ll build a bridge!
I’ll dry a troubled tear!
To family, God, and countrymen:
“Until I’m gone I’m here!”
