Ecclesiastes 12:1 & 1 Timothy 4:12



Verse 1
Age ain't nothin' but a number/ When I see the young ones amongst us/I pray that they hunger for God while the sun's up/ While still summer time before it's winter time/ I pray that they would come up/ Before they reach old age and they can take a fall/ And their knees won't break and they see no gray/ They teeth don't shake, before the wrinkled face, and they relocate yeah/ Where're my daylight soldiers with a teenage frame/ But a faith like grownups, play time's over/The weight on my shoulders/ Comes from the young that say “I'll wait ‘til I‘m older”/ But why wait ‘til you're 35/ You can be mature for your age in the Word of God/ Faith can be certified/ Laced in a shirt and tie/ You can be 13 going on 30 Ahhh

Hook
Age ain't nothin' but a number/ Can't judge a book by its cover
I know what you see will make you wonder/ I'm just acting older than my number
(2x)

Verse 2
They say the children are the future/ That's far from the truth but that's what we tell our youth groups/ And since that's what they've become used to/ It's hard for them to offer themselves to be useful/ No wonder they on YouTube all day and night/ Cause it's like they ain't useful ‘til they put on a new suit/ So we tell'em welcome to the new school/ Yes we need the old school, look at what the Jews do/ At age 5, little Jewish kids with an able mind, retain all five/ Books of the Pentateuch, rain or shine/ They are trained to abide at every age stage of their lives/ So to say “I'm too young” is an age old lie/ Cause the early bird catches the worm, it's your turn/ So you ain't gotta live all earthly/ When you can be 13 going on 30

Hook
Age ain't nothing but a number/ Can't judge a book by its cover
I know what you see will make you wonder/ I'm just acting older than my number
(2x)

Verse 3
They say a child shall lead them, but who gon train'em?/ Who gonna lead'em? Who gon Feed'em? Who gonna teach'em?/ Take'em out on the weekend, show'em how to stand like Daniel and his three friends/ You know its gotta be us talkin' bout you and I, all of the adults/ Culturally aware with our thumbs on the pulse/ You know its up to us to show the young how to walk/ look at Lebron James, he was 19 when he got in the game/ Pushin' rock in the lane, Dakota Fanning holdin' a fan club, 7 years old when they rolled in the cameras/ Joseph, Daniel, what about Samuel?/ Mary in the manger, all teenagers yeah/ If they could serve God early, then you can be 13 going on 30

Hook
Age ain't nothing but a number/ Can't judge a book by its cover
I know what you see will make you wonder/ I'm just acting older than my number
(2x)
