New Year's Prayer  
by Charlotte Anselmo 

Thank you Lord for giving me \ 
The brand new year ahead  
Help me live the way I should  
As each new day I tread. 

Give me gentle wisdom  
That I might help a friend  
Give me strength and courage  
So a shoulder I might lend. 

The year ahead is empty  
Help me fill it with good things  
Each new day filled with joy  
And the happiness it brings. 

Please give the leaders of our world  
A courage born of peace  
That they might lead us gently  
And all the fighting cease. 

Please give to all upon this earth  
A heart that's filled with love  
A gentle happy way to live  
With Your blessings from above.
