Fond Birthday Wishes To Dear Sister-In-Law

We wish you ‘Happy Birthday, ’
Oh, sister-in-law dear;
May God bless in special way,
And stay beside you near.

The years have rolled off quite well;
We have some miles to walk;
Despite some strife, life was swell,
We’ve learnt with God to talk.

God only knows our future;
His plans for us are great;
Let’s pray to Him by nature,
Our trials to abate.

His miracles are many;
His blessings showered much;
Grumblings, we have not any;
His grace, our heart does touch.

Let’s take the road to heaven;
Let’s go by His commands;
Let’s labour in time given;
God guides by His Word, Hands.

Most lovingly dedicated to dear Anni
Mrs. Josephine Joebert M.A., Chennai
