A cent’ry from now
It will not matter
What kind of car I drove
What kind of house I lived in,
How much money was in my bank account
Nor how I was clothed.
A cent’ry from now it won’t matter where I went to school
Or what my denomination or home church was.
A cent’ry from now, when the world should be a better place because
I helped someone while traveling through this life
Stopping ev’ry now and again to say
“hello my friend” and “how may I help you?”
That I was important in the life of God’s child
Will be the only thing that matters a cent’ry from now.
