A New Year Prayer
God grant us this year a wider view,
So we see others' faults through the eyes of You.
Teach us to judge not with hasty tongue,
Neither the adult ... Nor the young.
Give us patience and grace to endure
And a stronger faith so we feel secure.
Instead of remembering, help us forget
The irritations that caused us to fret.
Freely forgiving for some offense
And finding each day a rich recompense.
In offering a friendly, helping hand
And trying in all ways to understand.
That all of us whoever we are ...
Are trying to reach an unreachable star.
For the great and small ... The good and bad,
The young and old ... The sad and glad.
Are asking today, Is life worth living?
The answer is only in loving and giving.
For only Love can make man kind.
And Kindness of Heart brings Peace of Mind.
By giving love we can start this year
To lift the clouds of hate and fear.
