In this new year, I hope to be
By winds of doubt that blow my way;
To KNOW that I have but to pray
To bring about a finer day!
In this new year, as each day breaks
I'd look beyond MYSELF
To view, The Master, AND His plan
(Above the wiles of ANY man.)
That overshadows ALL I scan.
In this new year, as evening falls,
Let me assess my day
Assured that I've been true AND kind,
Retained a sane AND steadfast mind
As to Thy Throne my footsteps wind.
In this new year, should I be called
To MY eternity;
Let those who knew me linger near;
Be HAPPY that our paths crossed here,
AND KNOW I'm leaving WITHOUT fear...
Should I be called in this new year.
