Brand New Year
It’s a brand new year, and a brand new day;
None has seen it, none have come this way.
It will be filled with what you choose to receive.
Blessings on blessings come to those who believe.
Seek to see the blessings of God in each day;
Open your heart and walk in His loving way.
Study His holy word and in His promises believe;
He died for you that forgiveness you may receive.
Serve the Lord as you are serving others today;
Show them God’s great love in the words you say.
Reach out your hand that His love they may receive;
Speak the words in your heart that they may believe.
Sing, shout and proclaim His glorious praises today;
Let them know He is the truth, the life and the way.
His love from your heart they will gladly receive;
When in His loving promises they trust and believe.
When you face troubles, or having a real rough day,
Give someone a hand and your troubles melt away.
As much as you give, all more you will receive;
I know there is truth in His love and so I believe.
Yes, it’s a brand new year and a brand new day.
We have tried it our way; now let’s try it His way.
For it is only in Him that salvation we receive,
To follow His way and in Christ Jesus believe.
