With bags and sags and wrinkles and wispy white hair,
and I asked my reflection,

A living gem and precious, of unimagined worth
Unique and true, the real you, the only you on earth.

should purify and strengthen, and polish up that jewel.
So focus your attention on the inside, not the out
On being kinder, wiser, more content and more devout
Then, when your gift-wrap’s stripped away your jewel will be set free,
to radiate God’s glory throughout eternity.
