A PRAYER FOR THE NEW YEAR

Prayer for the New Year'

Grant me the strength from day to day,
To bear what burdens come my way
.Grant me throughout this bright New Year
More to endure and less to fear
.Help me live that I may be
From spite and petty malice free.

Let me not bitterly complain
When cherished hopes of mine prove vain,
Or spoil with deeds of hate and rage
Some fair tomorrow's spotless page.
Lord, as the days shall come and go
In courage let me stronger grow.

Lord, as the New Year dawns today
Help me to put my faults away.
Let me be big in little things;
Grant me the joy which friendship brings.
Keep me from selfishness and spite;
Let me be wise in what is right

.A happy New Year! Grant that I

May bring no tear to any eye
When this New Year in time shall end
Let it be said I've played the friend,
Have lived and loved for others here

,And made of it a happy year.


grateful thanks to sybil for this lovely prayer.

Abd a very happy new year to you SIR. May this year bring all you wish. May your friends be many and no enemies exist. May you be loved and appreciated every day. And if you are not appreciated, as long as you are satisfied. That will be all you need.
God Bless,
from across the pond,
Sherry & Jack
