Another year the Lord has created
Let us rejoice and start celebrating
A fresh start the Lord has gave us

Some of us made resolutions to alter our ways
Some are looking forward to major change
Like a new job, car, school or house
Or even a spouse
Some want to try a new adventure or vacation in a new place
Others seek to reconcile with or visit a long, lost, face
Still others plan nothing special, will take it day by day

So, what will 2018 really bring?
Will it be the fulfillment of hopes and dreams?
Or tragedies unforeseen?
It is yet to be seen
But what is certain is God’s mercies
They will renew every morning

While the year is new, God is as He’s always been
We can keep on praying, thanking and praising Him
As the same merciful God will be listening
And no matter what 2018 brings
To our Lord will can still cling—for everything.
