Birthday Sonnet xxiii

Once again that happy day comes along
Which bids me count the blessings God's given.
My heart will find expression in a song,
And my praises will rise towards heaven.
But can I number all His benefits?
And His providence, can I fathom it?
Not if I cannot count the infinite,
For with much favours He fills each minute.
A birthday is a day to be happy,
But another milestone it also marks
On this my short, weary, homeward journey.
“How have I lived?” Well would I pause to ask.
Through this and every day, more may I be
Determined to live for Him who made me.
