At the New Year’s Starting Hour

Folklore, tradition, wishful thinking
Have been quoted as saying
Whatever you’re doing as the old year becomes new
Is what you’ll be doing the new year through.

Well Lord, You and I know the facts
If this was true lives could be decided
When a few minutes pass by You
But I’m grateful You showed me what to do.

As the year 2014 gives way to 2015
I’ll cling to You and trust You to provide
So I’ll lift up my prayers and praise to You
Focus on serving You as You’d have me to do.

It’s what we do You and I, and You and others do
A relationship that develops year along
So let the hour wrapping midnight
Come and go it’s going to be alright.

With You on my side I know You’ll see me through.

God bless you in 2015!

As 2014 Ticks Away

The clock will tick
The ball will drop
The kiss be shared
The balloons go “pop”.
The minute will pass
The time will go
The calendar flip
The noise will flow.
The year will change
The party will end
The heart will beat
The pass foe & friend.

Though troubles arrive
Though joys overflow
Though sadness depart
Though winds will blow.
Though Christ will return
Though the day unknown
Though the rapture occur
Though the war be won.
Though peace will reign
Though with Christ eternally
Though you may have time
Though it will happen eventually.

The day will come
The Lord will appear
The time unknown
The moment so dear.
The eyes will lift
The sight in the East
The rapture will occur
The final end the Beast.
The knees will bow
The tongues confess
The God in Trinity
He is the One we bless.
