Happy Birthday Patty

I have naught to give of earthly treasure.
But my Father is rich beyond earthly measure.
He owns the cattle on a thousand hills,
And your name is written in His heavenly will.

I give you reminder of this glorious fact.
And of love in my heart, for you there's no lack.
I give you my honesty, and friendship ever true.
On this, your birthday, it's my gift to you.

I call out your name, daily in prayer.
When you need a friend, I'll surely be there.
Of monetary value, theses words have none.
But they come from my heart with love, every one.

Written for Pat Evans, long time friend from back home.
