The FIRST thing I DO is come to You,
For Your protection from evil and sin,
So You may keep me.. PEACEFUL and calm,
In a world of drama…a chaotic din.
They say the JOY is in the JOURNEY,
And this… the FIRST day of the YEAR,
JOY is found in my relationship with YOU,
And so I will have “no fear.”
I look forward to what this NEW YEAR will bring,
Surrendering MY WILL to You, GOD,
When You are with me… every step of the way,
I’ll have JOY on this journey WE trod.
There has to be ENDINGS to have BEGINNINGS,
A year ends and a NEW YEAR arrives,
With anticipation, LOVE and JOY in my heart,
My SPIRITUALITY is surely to thrive.
When I go to sleep, I will do the same,
End my day with GRATITUDE in PRAYER,
THANKFUL for EVERYTHING in my life,
Knowing through it all… with me… YOU were there.
