A New Year’s Prayer

A whole new world is mine today…May I be wiser, Lord I pray!I’d strengthen friendships, old and trueAnd learn to cherish new ones too;To keep on learning and to growAnd little deeper as I go.To cast aside each grudge and griefAnd hold fast to a firm beliefThat life is joyous, gracious, good,When lived in terms of brotherhood.To welcome fun, and play awhile,To lighten work with a pleasant smile!To thank the Lord and every dayRemember Him and kneel to pray,In gratitude for strength and healthAnd blessing which are all my wealth.This year’s a gift of God to meTo spend, or use, or set me free…A whole new year is mine today…May I wiser, Lord I pray.by anonymous
