    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 and labored here,
    And made of it a happy year.
