A NEW BEGINNING
by Mariane Holbrook
With great precision God has set his watch for New Yearís Day,
A day for new beginnings, hopes held high.
A time to make new plans and face the New Year just ahead,
And tell past disappointments all goodbye.
God planned it so the blackest nights would end each morn at dawn.
The sun would rise and burst across the land.
Itís brilliance burns away our worries, casts out all our fears,
For this is what the great Creator planned.
Put away the failures of your recent yesterdays.
Pack them up and send them on their way.
Godís watch is set so moon and sun obey His great commands
To give us a new start with each new day.
Dear Father, as we face another year to serve you here,
To finish up our jobs, both large and small,
That if this yearís the date Your son returns to earth again,
Youíll find that weíve been faithful through it all.
