Forever Young, a song by Bob Dylan

Forever Young, the Lyrics



May God bless and keep you always.

May your wishes all come true.

May you always do for others

And let others do for you.

May you build a ladder to the stars

And climb on every rung.

May you stay forever young.

Forever young, forever young.

May you stay 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.



May your hands always be busy.

May your feet always be swift.

May you have a strong foundation,

When the winds of changes shift.


May your heart always be joyful

And may your song always be sung

May you stay forever young.


Forever young, forever young

May you stay forever young.
