Today is your birthday
and you shouldn’t be sad
because you’re growing and changing.
You’re going to be happy and glad.
You’re on the way to freedom
from the trials of your past.
Haven’t you noticed the days flying?
This year has gone by so fast.
Seventeen on to eighteen.
Pretty soon twenty on to twenty-one.
The best years are ahead of you,
the years of happiness and fun.
So always look to the Father
and hold your head up high.
For with God’s love and caring,
you’ll be able to watch another year go by.
