Time has swiftly passed us all on by
The sun has rose up in morning skies
The moon has shone on nightly tides
Time has marched never to subside
Until the day You say,
“Go bring my people home today.”
That moment comes we know not when
While we go through life in hurried spin
Oh Father help us to remember now
Our promises, our oaths, our vows
Remind us of our mission from Your Word
Introduce all to Jesus Christ our Lord.
Forgive me Father for wrongs I’ve done
People I’ve hurt, works left unsung
For the times I’ve strayed far away
Searching for what I cannot even say
Except that it was not best for me,
Woe the times I did not heed.
Before me Lord a brand new day
Another chance to follow Your way
Put behind me this selfish child
To serve my Savior, strong, meek & mild
In this year 2014 I plea there be
More of You and far, far less of me.
Thank You for the blessings of
The year whose door softly thuds
For love, laughter, family, friends
For Your faithfulness that never ends
For always holding to my hand.
Yes Dear Abba I do indeed pray
That from henceforth, from this day
I remember that to serve You best
More of You and less of me, much less
Until the day You call me home
Let me from You not to roam.
For others Lord I also bow to ask
Strength for the journey, courage the task
Let our hands hold onto the plow
Never looking back nor fearing how
But trusting in Your loving grace
Until we see You face-to-face.
Here’s to the New Year 2014!
