A Prayer for the new year


The tide of time washes over the old year as it fades away
and the new year is beginning bringing in a brand new day.
A clean slate and a blank canvas made ready for me to display
my many acts of loving kindness through each passing day.
Please God help me to fill each canvas with sweetness and love
as I try to walk in the footsteps of my Lord from heaven above

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
