Forever Young

May you grow up to be righteous

May you grow up to be true
May you always know the truth
And see the lights surrounding you
May you always be courageous
Stand upright and be strong
May you stay forever young
Forever young, forever young
May you stay forever young

The last stanza of Bob Dylan's "Forever Young"

Rabbi Marc Gellman referred to this song in this morning's "God Squad" column . 
He writes that some popular songs can be considered modern day psalms 
and that this one tops the list.  It was a wonderful blessing to start the day.

Tonight I'm listening to Joan Baez sing it.  I hope it blesses you, too.

May your spirit stay forever young.
