The New Year brings with it hope anew,
New adventures to pursue;
It brings with it no limit to the scope and latitude of our aspirations,
Indeed, it heightens our good hopes and expectations,
Stirring up our exultations
For it is He, our God, whom we exult this day,
And to Him, humbly pray;
Thank you, O God, for bringing us through these many years of yore,
Yes, for answered prayer and more,
We praise and adore.
It is true, last year was not altogether to our liking,
Of it, some, to our disliking;
But this is a new year that we do now approach and breakout upon,
An embarkation, with faith to rely on,
His Word to depend on.
Thus as we embark, leaving the harbor of this year behind,
Let us set sail, with a new state of mind;
As the shores of this world fade from view, let us trust our God anew,
For He, our Captain, will see us through,
In all that we do.
