As I have Rosie in my arms
I think, is any bliss -
Are any eyes, or lips, or charms -
More excellent than this?

There is a face I have not seen,
A voice I have not heard,
A gracious dignity and mien,
Which are to be preferred.

While still, blest Spirit, sight and touch
Hold me, help I implore
To daily love my Rose as much
And love my Jesus more.

It's her birthday today, and a month to our 36th wedding anniversary;
so I'll do a little celebrating this week.
