God Gave me another new Year
God gave me another New Year
With a chance to start anew
May I be kinder, and wiser Lord
In all I say and do.
Not so caught up in selfish gain
That I would fail to see
The things in life that mean the most
Cost not a fancy fee.
The warm kind words that I can give
The outstretched hand to help
The prayers I say for those in need.
More precious these than wealth.
I know not what may lie ahead
Of laughter or of tears
I only need to know each day
That YOU are walking near.
