  1. A Birthday Greeting
    Poet: John Imrie

    Time is ever on the wing,
    Fast our moments fly away;
    Let us prize them, though they bring
    Joy and sorrow mixed always!
    Had we joy alone, my friend,
    We would seek no other sphere;
    Did God only sorrow send,
    We would wish the end was near!

    God is wiser far than we,
    And He knoweth what is best;
    Let us in His wisdom see
    That He seeks our faith to test!
    May we live, as though this hour
     Were our last on earth to spend;
    And, come sunshine, shade, or shower,
    God's best blessing will attend!

    Let the years roll on apace.
    Heaven is nearer than before;
    Let us bravely trials face.
    Waves break loudest near the shore!
    Summer, Autumn, Winter, Spring,
    All within one year are bound;
    Let us through each season sing
    Songs of praise the whole year round!

  2. Plans I Have For You
    Poet: Catherine Pulsifer
    (Jeremiah 29:11 NIV)

    The years have passed our journey continues
    But God has opened for you so many avenues.
    When you look back and see His love
    I know, you know, it is from above.

    God has a purpose for your life
    And when you faced life's strife
    He has been with you through it all
    He has helped you stand up tall.

    God has blessed you with another year
    Listen for His voice and hear:
    "For I know the plans I have for you,"
    Plans to prosper you and not to harm you,
    Plans to give you hope and a future."

    So, celebrate this special day
    Be thankful and praise God above.
    Your birthday we all celebrate,
    Let's give thanks and cut the cake!

  10. God Has A Plan
    Poet: Unknown

    Little trouble and still less care,
    With ever a faithful heart to share;
    Birthdays many, and happy too,
    This is the life I wish for you.

    So another year older you may be

  11. Age Is Beauty
    Poet: Greta Zwaan, © 1982

    Does your age make you feel you're a burden to man?
    Remember beloved, you're part of God's plan.
    Though your body be feeble, your hearing impaired,
    There's a great deal of work in this world to be shared.

    And though you're not able to physically strain,
    You are still able to share other's pain.
    You can encourage and you can advise
    The vast store of knowledge that now buried lies.

    The lessons you've learned in your travels on earth,
    To those who are younger can share of your worth.
    Let the beauty of age and the wisdom of time
    Be a joy to your heart, and then share it with mine.

  12. All Hail
    Poet: Caleb Davis Bradlee

    All hail, my friend, a holy cheer,
    On this, your natal day!
    May all things bright and good appear,
    We do most humbly pray.

    In childhood's hour we knew your name,
    In the old ark, our home,
    Where with your bird-like voice you came,
    Our parents bade you come.

    And when in later life we met,
    Old friendships were renewed;
    And 'round the past we linger yet,
    With trembling eyes bedewed!

    We both have parted with the true,
    We both have said "Good-bye,"
    And holy angels watch us too,
    And linger often nigh!

    This sacred hour we will rejoice
    For all that God has given,
    And with a gladsome, hopeful voice,
    Will turn our eyes to Heaven.

    All hail again, this birthday thine;
    With joy and trust go on!
    Long may it be ere life decline,
    And mortal work be done!
