  8. On My Fortieth Birthday
    Poet: John Imrie

    Forty years of age to-day!
    Ah! how time doth pass away;
    Like a pleasant summer's day,
    Or like children's hours of play!

    Now I've reach'd ripe manhood's prime,
    Fain would bar the march of time;
    Raven locks now tipp'd with grey,
    Show the signs of sure decay.

    Grateful love my heart doth fill, —
    Reach'd the summit of life's hill ;
    Safe through many an anxious care,
    "Thank Thee, Lord," my daily prayer.

    Now a-down "life's other side,"
    Knowing not what may betide;
    Trusting where I cannot trace,
    Till I see God face to face!

    Let the years, then, come and go,
    Fraught with weal or mix'd with woe;
    I will trust my Father's love
    Till I reach His home above!
