Tola Ogundare, during her birthday in Abuja Nigeria.

Composer's Foreword

Birthday is a memorable day in humans lives. It is a day many look forward to. There are people like me who do not remember their birthday dates because we have not been brought up to pay attention to such dates.

In fact some "religionists" do not believe in birthday and have taught their ardent followers not to pay attention to their birthday dates claiming that evils are associated to celebrating those dates.

Some of those "religionists" used to quote the book of Mark 6:22ff when Herod was marking his birthday that he killed John the Baptist that day, thence they strongly discouraged their followers from celebrating their birthdays.

However Prophet Moses who is acclaimed to be the author of Psalms 90:12 while talking says that God should teach us to number our days and he shares the reasons for this prayer or word which is that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom.

No one can number his or her days without knowing his birthday whether or nay celebrated. Therefore, it is good that one knows his birthday.

The reasons for us knowing and or marking our birthdays are briefly shared in this song.

It worth stating that it is not necessary that we celebrate it like King Herod in the bible, we can celebrate it in a low-key fashion with our couples, children, and or friends for those without spouses and who want to celebrate their birthdays in a low key fashion. It is a day to bless the name of the Lord for all he has done, is doing and will do.

The tune for composing this song is shared here as prerecorded on YouTube and I trust that we shall be blessed by the wordings as you sing with me.

Thank you.

Chorus

It is nice to always remember

Once a year, the time we were born

It is time (yea) to give (our) praises

Unto our God, as we mark our birthday


Leader

Birthday comes once every year

Except for those b'gotten on 29th

Of the month, the month of February

And those people mark theirs' every four years

Chorus


Leader

Every thing happening around us

Is designed to instruct our hearts

Of the goodness and the faithfulness

Of Elohim to us his express image

Chorus


Leader

When we remember how Elohim saved us

As we passed through valleys of the death.

During the pasts we cannot but praise him

For his mercies an' protection on us

Chorus


Leader

When in lack yea when in need

During the past years, Jehovah Jireh arrives

Meeting with each an' every of our needs

According to his riches in Glory

Chorus


Leader

During the time when we took ill

Jehovah Rapha is the One we see

With the healing balms applied on our bodies

By whose stripes we have also been healed

Chorus


Leader

During the time of multitudes

He is the One who has supplied all

Yea our God is always there for us

Omnipotent, Omniscience, Omnipresent

Chorus


Leader

At the occasion of this birthday of mine

Lord I praise you for all you have done in the past

Those things you are doing now

And yea for what you 'll do in the future

Chorus
