THE BLESSINGS OF GOD IN THE NEW YEAR
On December thirty-first at midnight each year,
We each raise a glass for a toast and a cheer,
We always remember the struggles we’ve won,
But somehow forget the things left undone.
We promise to change the way that we’ve been,
And vow to live our future without sin,
But since we are mortal and often we fail,
We ask for God’s guidance to weather the gale.
We ask that He always remind us and show,
How to honor his commandments that we already know,
And if we are true and our hearts are kept clean,
Eternal Life for us believers will be seen.
So lift up your glass, and praise God above,
For his wondrous blessings and his bountiful love,
And remember to live the way it should be,
To honor our King who died at Calvary.
Always love your neighbor as you love yourself,
And keep all your anger boxed up on the shelf,
Because love is the answer to things that we must,
Successfully pursue to earn Jesus’ trust.
So cheers to the New Year, and all of its promise,
And help us to not become Doubting Thomas,
And if we commit to living the right way,
We will experience His majesty on this New Year’s Day.
