Our 45th Wedding Anniversary
By Mary T. Hoffman

Hooray! Hooray! Today’s the day
To celebrate our big Four Five!
It’s been great fun, much more in store
As hand in hand, through the door
To future blessings we proceed
And try to help the ones in need.

We will not rest; this world’s a test.
In God we trust to lead us on
By truth and peace to right the wrong;
Till kindness spreads, becomes so strong,
And Christ returns to sweep away
The evil found on earth today.

Then will our prayer – Thy Kingdom come
On earth as it is in heaven –
Come true: No pain, no tears,
An end to fears.
What glimmered as on a distant shore,
God’s intent will reign once more.
