A New Year Is About To Begin/ A Prayer For Your Forgiveness - Poem by Shalom Freedman


A New Year is about to begin
I pray for Your Forgiveness
For my sins of pride of selfishness
Of envy of resentment -
of lust of loss of faith -
of so much else I may not even know I do wrong in.
Forgive me for my failures
in education
And in teaching.
Forgive me and help me be strong enough to go on
I am sorry if I have disappointed you,
My father my King God of Israel.
