Happy Birthday

Happy Birthdays to Orlando Gibbons, Sir Isaac Newton, Dorothy Wordsworth, Muhammed Ali Jinnah, Humphrey Bogart, Sir Lew Grade, Quentin Crisp, Princess Alexandra of Kent, Annie Lennox, Helena Christiansen, Dido, Marcus Trescothick ... and someone whose birthday I know some of my friends will be celebrating today -- nuttyxander, of course.

Oh, and there's this:

The trumpets sound, the angels sing
The feast is ready to begin
The gates of heaven are open wide
And Jesus welcomes you inside

Tables are laden with good things
O taste the peace and joy he brings
He'll fill you up with love divine
He'll turn your water into wine

Sing with thankfulness songs of pure delight
Come and revel in heaven's love and light
Take your place at the table of the King
The feast is ready to begin
The feast is ready to begin

The hungry heart he satisfies
Offers the poor his paradise
Now hear all heaven and earth applaud
The amazing goodness of the Lord

Jesus
We thank you
For your love
For your joy
Jesus
We thank you
For the good things
You give to us

Sing with thankfulness songs of pure delight
Come and revel in heaven's love and light
Take your place at the table of the King
The feast is ready to begin
The feast is ready to begin
-- Graham Kendrick (b. 1950)



Merry Christmas to you all, in addition to the greeting of your choice.
