BIRTHDAY CHEERS FOR OUR PASTOR
God Almighty be thanked for never shutting down
His blessings keep on pouring down
Supplying us in the midst of enhanced community lockdown
With His grace that’s always flowing down.
The Lord be praised for upholding our Pastor who never slows down
He keeps cheering us against Covid19 crisis that’s putting many people down Especially in helping us get revived to fight tendency of breaking down
And by Christ’s strength, strive to get up so as not to be knocked down.
God be glorified for our Pastor who guides us “to the Lord, we bow down”
His leadership directs us to approach God with faith, humbling down
Believing that the Saviour is graciously reaching us down
While worshipping in spirit and in truth, reverentially kneeling down.
We greet you, Pastor, smiting pandemic gloom that’s pressing fervor down
With hearts staying near you, despite social distancing’s pulling down
We pray that you’ll remain healthy, with great physical tone-down
And be spared from high blood pressure since God’s peace can calm you down.
We salute you, Pastor, for your fortitude of never quitting down
Along your fervent preaching of God’s Word while we’re sitting down
Likewise your diligent commitment and practice to push laziness down
Since enthusiasm in soulwinning and ministry-works should not cool down.
Thank you, Pastor*, for strengthening our spirits against falling down
Exhorting us that through prayer, all our cares, to the Saviour, we cast down
We lift you to the Lord Who can conquer enemies that tear you down
Persuaded that you’re a gift from God, indeed heavenly sent-down.
*Jeremiah 3:15 And I will give you pastors according to mine heart, which shall feed you with knowledge and understanding.
