May We Grow Fruitful as We Age

 


עוד ינובון בשיבה דשנים ורעננים יהיו

להגיד כי ישר יי צורי ולא עולת בו

Od yenuvun b’sayvah
Desheynim v’raananim yiyu
Lehagid ki yashar Ado-nai (2)
Tzuri v’lo avlata bo. (2)

May we grow fruitful as we age
Ripe and abundant and sage
Keep our hearts open, to all we face
Present to goodness, even a trace.
Renew us, let our spirits soar.
Sustain us, Our Rock, for more.

Psalm 92:16-17.
