It's A New Year, God - poem

It's A New Year, God

You are ushering in another year

untouched and freshly new,

so here I come to ask You God

if You'll renew me to?

Forgive the many errors,

that I made in the past,

and let me try again dear God,

to walk closer in Thy way.

But God, I am well aware

I can't make it on my own.

So take my hand and hold it tight

for I can't walk alone.

Lord, teach me, as Your faithful follower, how

To have fun without folly,

To be cheerful without vanity,

To have self-respect without pride,

To be strict without fanaticism,

To be relaxed without laziness,

To be serious without gloom,

To be friendly and not fickle,

To be sunny and not silly,

Lord, teach me how.
