On being asked by a friend to wish and bless her on her birthday.
CRAVE HIS BLESSINGS


Why crave my friend that I should
This day wish and bless you?
My wishes do not matter,
Although His blessings do.

I’m merely an instrument
Of His eternal peace.
My task is to carry out
Whatever He may please.

If He may be pleased to give
You His own special gift,
From mental morass, He will
Your spirits truly lift.

If His pleasure lies in that
He may bring you some pain,
Then of no consequence will
All my wishes remain.

So, friend, better covet His
Blessings, rather than mine.
Maybe the Lord Himself will
Give you His grace and sign.
