I've been given a gift,
It is a gift so grand.
It is a gift so great,

Even though you're not here, you're here.
You are the smile on my face.
Even though you're far away, you are oh, so near.
I'm surrounded by reflections of your grace.
The time has come when my birthday is near,
And I look forward to greetings from ones I hold dear.
Will their cards make me laugh, or shed a tear?
It is because of that, that I look forward to every year.
Almighty is He,
Beloved He be.
Contagious is His love.
Domine, Lord up above.
All I can say is 'Love! '
All I can feel is love!
All I can do
Is give thanks to You
There once was a man who lived an upright life.

Another year past of pushing the boulder.
You have grown a little wiser,
And trouble spewed out like a geyser.

On this dark, clouded day,
As he does impose his will,
This is what we shall say:
