FOR A FRIENDíS BIRTHDAY




Brother and friend, with heart and voice,
We greet thee on this festal morn;
None but the Christian can rejoice
In deed and truth, that he was born.


Since to this evil world you came,
Your heavenly birth-right have you prized?
In Father, Son, and Spiritís name,
Were you not from that world baptized?


The dead to sin, alive to God,
Whateíer you feel, or seek, or do,
Along the path our Saviour trod,
Meekly his blessed steps pursue.


So shall the Father cause his face
To shine on you while life endures,
So be the Sonís redeeming grace,
The Holy Ghostís communion, yours.


So may we all with heart and voice
Sing at the resurrection morn,
And through eternity rejoice,
At Godís right hand, that we were born.
