With gratitude my heart adorns this day,
Replete with benedictions from above,
Deserving of a priceless prayer bouquet,
For fourscore years of untold gracious love;
From birth His presence shielded me from harm,
Although it did not always seem that way,
When ‘Untoward’ assailed, causing alarm
Threat’ning o’er self and fam’ly to hold sway,
Through loyal kith and kin, His love prevailed,
Occasioning no Rubicon be crossed;
In Autumn years new person is unveiled,
To all with sensitivity embossed,
Let all the world in dulcet tones extol
The good God that today embrace my soul!

Another year is come and gone
Like every other year;
That which is done is left undone.
The future never fear,
A pristine page is clear!
The present moment celebrate,
On unknown never fret;
The Lord will always navigate,
In confidence do bet –
He bids you ne’er forget!
Let gratitude each day adorn
With odes of fulsome praise;
In downcast hearts new joys are born
When into hope they gaze –
Promise of fairer days!
