Swiftly doth the time fly, and another New year lies ahead
Oh! My past year resolutions, should it be to this year instead?
Did I add any soul last year, or At least did mine stay fit,
Did I run the race with cheer, or did I incapably quit?
Yet again that time of year, to reflect the past and start anew;
And of the hard times tackled, self-interrogate “How could you?”
It never could have been the strength in me, nor from those around
T’was felt as unexplainable strength from a Loving wing surround!
Besides all those situations where I couldn’t manage to be me
And those failed times of being a living testimony,
Besides my promises for the past year failing completely apart
His promises from above, assured He’d never depart!
What makes it new is not the birth of a New Calendar Year
But the cleansing of sins that makes me renewed and pure;
With each time I open my stained heart to Him
Blessings and divine guidance overflows over the brim.
Gifted with Life to enter another year shouldn’t be a day’s joy-
For His blessings are new every morning and that I enjoy.
I totally surrender myself into Thy precious Hand
Grant me the strength to live the way you’ve planned;
Make me a blessing to those around, O Lord I pray,
And from this New year to feel renewed day after day.
