Happy birthday, George

Lord, now lettest thou thy servant depart in peace,
according to thy word;
For mine eyes have seen thy salvation,
Which thou hast prepared before the face of all people,
To be a light to lighten the gentiles,
and to be the glory of thy people Israel.
Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost:
As it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

Happy birthday, Gustav
