Joan Baez Forever Young Lyrics

Last updated: 11/04/2012 12:19:15 PM

May God's blessing 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.

May you grow up to be righteous,
May you grow up to be true,
May you always know the truth
And see the LIGHT 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,
May your song always be sung,
May you stay forever young,
Forever young, forever young,
May you stay forever young.

Stay Young | Reviewer: Bo | 5/17/11

This song brings tears to my eyes, it does so because as I age and I watch my grandchildren, (15 & 5) I realize how we wanted to be older when we were young. Now as time goes on I want my oldest grandson to read these words and appreciate what youth has to offer, and the importance of so many of these words. The message she brought was simple, stay young, treat everyone with dignity and truth, and nothing can really go wrong.

My Mom always played this for me, and sang it for me. I absolutely love this song- one time it started playing in the car, and I couldn't stop myself from crying, which caused her to cry. To this day, I find the song to be beautiful, full of emotion that Joan Baez sings masterfully.

Memories | Reviewer: Vicki | 1/17/11

I sang this song to my youngest son whenever he didn't want to sleep at night. When he was married in October of "09, this was the song we chose to dance to. It has been special for me from the first time I heard it and will always remain so...

Lifetime Favorite | Reviewer: roly | 12/28/07

Forever Young
This song has remained my favorite, ever since I first made a video for my daughter Shireen way back in the early 80's. Amazingly inspiring, truly awesome. It will always be one favorite of mine.

Moved to Tears | Reviewer: New Grandfather | 11/16/07

I used this song as the soundtrack for a slideshow I made of all the pics I had taken of my new granddaughter. After I finished the slideshow, I played it for the family --- there wasn't a dry eye in the room. One of the most beautiful songs in the world, for sure.

Something for my Grandchildren | Reviewer: Pam | 9/22/07

This song has always been a favourite of mine and the words are so poignant. I have copied the lyrics and will make a special card for my four beautiful grandchildren. The lyrics echo my wishes for them. I did this for my children as they were growing up too.

I love this song sung by Baez. It is a traditional song for me to play loved ones when I call to wish them a happy birthday. Awesome
