60th BIRTHDAY SONNET
The Centre holds: things do not fall apart
Because the Centre is the ascended Man
Whose work and worthiness secure our heart,
Who works all things to God's eternal plan.
If God confided everything to Him
Because He loves Him, we have confidence
Although the moment's outlook may seem dim,
The end will demonstrate His excellence.
Here He displayed the way we ought to go;
There He sustains in interceding love;
His Spirit guides us on the paths below
And soon we shall be with our Lord above.
So, as the wonder of God's ways unfolds
We trust in Jesus Christ: the Centre holds.
