Sing for All the Years You Have Been Granted

Music: Sonata K153.
By Domenico Scarlatti. Sequenced by John Sankey.

Sing for all the years you have been granted,
Each blessing sing, each child, girl and boy!
Verses sing for all the things you've wanted:
Each victory, each pleasure, and each joy!
No matter age or illness, sing undaunted,
Though you may be by dreams or memories haunted,
Yet sing, and life and love this day enjoy!
