Frank’s Birthday
By Mary T. Hoffman

Today’s the day to celebrate
The birthday of my mate who’s great!
Yet how can words alone convey
The joy I feel on this, your day?
You know I love you very much –
No need for showy gifts and such!

We’re blessed to know what we must do
While here on earth, until we’re through
Making this a better place:
To soften hearts of the human race.
God brought us together for this reason:
To help His creatures through every season.

And when our work here is complete,
Hand in hand we’ll go to meet
The Lord Himself and all the souls –
The calves, the mice, the birds, the foals –
All creatures free of stress and fears.
No more cries of pain and tears,
No more cruelty, not a trace
Exists in that eternal place.
No more will Satan’s evil stain
Where Jesus and his kindness reign.

Our final flight, what a sight –
From darkness to eternal light.
The peace for which we daily pray
Will ever more be here to stay.
