As I look to 2007, I think of seven-
Your number of completion,
a sign of divine perfection,
I look forward with hope,
Because I have a God of Hope.
I thank You that there shall be great strides
And great beginnings in this year,
And there shall be a completion
Of much that have lingered;
And that have been hindered,
Because greater are You in me
than he that is in the world.
I am reminded that on the seventh
You rested from all your work.
I look forward to rest on every side.
I put my hands into your hands
As you lead me by your Spirit
Into my promised land.
Disband very wicked band
By your mighty power.
Let me find your grace
In every dark hour.
In your sufficiency
I am sufficient.
I draw strength from your strength.
I draw wisdom from your infinite wisdom.
To go from strength to strength;
From faith to faith and from glory to glory.
I trust You to make every barrier
A stepping stone to breakthrough.
Every valley shall be raised.
Every crooked path shall be made straight;
Not by my might nor by my power
But by the Most High Who above all towers.
I count on Your presence as my present
This New Year, and your face as my light.
By the end of this year,
Glorious things will be spoken of You.
I call those things which be not
As though they were, all because of You,
My Shelter, my Shield, my Helper
My Source, my Strength, my Song
My Owner, my Lover, my God.
