The day my life commenced … wondrously great Propels each endeavour as good success Surely designed and authored by the Lord Who grants grace, sufficiently abundant Toward grand fulfillment, never worthless. First among those days is my blissful birth As parents’ love-fruit who bloomed in their care Following such are triumphant moments Marked with milestones, carved and etched in my heart Worth thanking God for with joyous praises. My second birth is best of all the days Divinely miraculous, since Christ-wrought Quickening my spirit from being slain Healing with forgiveness my sin-sick soul Assuring me gift of eternal life. The rest, I label as marvelous days Though stained with failures and frustration woes Others are notable, leaving me scars But reigning are significant days’ bliss Spent through faith-function for Saviour’s glory. My days* to me are Almighty’s presents Precious against selfishness’ futile greed Cherished treasures for glad earnest sharing While consumed devoid of any regret… Such is my prayer midst human weakness.
