Golden Years are Passing By
Music from Laura Ingalls Wilder's Little House Books

Lyrics by Will L. Thompson

Golden years are passing by,
Happy, happy golden years,
Passing on the wings of time,
These happy golden years.
Call them back as they go by,
Sweet their memories are,
Oh, improve them as they fly,
These happy golden years.

Chorus:
Golden years, golden years
Happy golden years
Oh, improve them as they fly
These Happy Golden Years

Golden years are passing by,
Precious precious golden years
let no idle hour be spent
With sorrow, grief and tears
Ah! The good we all may do
As the moments pass
To your nobler self be true
Reward will come at last

Chorus

Golden years are passing by
Fleeting, fleeting swiftly on
Life is but a passing hour
Before we know 'tis gone
Soon the parting time will come
Day by day it nears
Have you done your duty well
These happy golden years?

From These Happy Golden Years
