Liner Notes: 

Wedding anniversary time again. As I write this my wife has already called it a night. This is the last part of my anniversary gift to her--- a long asked-for compilation of some of my stuff so she can listen to it on a CD in her work/art room. I wrote this song to be the last song on the disc.

Lyrics: 

It's been a sweet sixteen years
my beautiful and wonderful one
We've had our share of smiles and tears
my beautiful and wonderful one

but walking hand in hand together
along life's rocky trails
bound to each other and to the God
whose mercy never fails
we know we'll keep on travelling
wherever this road leads
As we hold close to Jesus
and let him fill our needs

It's been a sweet sixteen years
my beautiful and wonderful one
As time's wheel keeps on turning gears
my beautiful and wonderful one

but sixteen is too short a time
the road it yet goes forth
I'm glad to have you every day
your love that you brought north
we'll pray we have yet dozens more
to raise our children true
And see what God still has in store
For us to love and do

It's been a sweet sixteen years
my beautiful and wonderful one
we'll keep on going and ignore the fears
my beautiful and wonderful one

I have promised I will be there
Until death us do part
That's a promise I plan to keep
With all of my heart

It's been a sweet sixteen years
my beautiful and wonderful one
our loving three children lead on the cheers
my beautiful and wonderful one
my beautiful and wonderful one

What a wonderful gift to her! Sometimes when you are married for a time, and you look back, you wonder how you got through it. I love to hear a love song that is so real and true.
