Known and preserved from the womb,
Kept by mercy from evil’s harm,
Until the appointed time of visitation,
When you reside in God’s mighty arm,
After believing and accepting the Lord,
How sweet the soothing good news!
As sweetness from honey’s comb,
Joy of salvation without hesitation
Before now you celebrated life.
But ‘twas only in the world view
Life in ignorance or strife,
Now having known the truth,
You can now celebrate abundant life.
Even when it seems you approach the tomb,
There is still joy in celebration.
Joy that surpasses happiness,
Everyday is somebody’s day.
Each day with its own newness,
The day that manifests the Spirit,
Surpasses the day that manifests the flesh,
There is one birthday of earthly visit,
But another birthday of heavenly freshness,
There is significance in dual festivity,
Here is wishing you a Happy Birthday.
