Brand New Year
Come now children don’t be shy,
Another year has done gone by.
Leave behind your fear and doubt,
I’ll tell you what I’m talking about.
A brand new adventure lies ahead,
On a path where your faith is fed.
A new day unseen by me and you,
Lives are changed and made new.
Some will see and think you odd,
Because we strive to follow God.
But God’s word will keep us strong,
And school us in right and wrong.
Keep our focus, don’t lose our way;
His love will guide us through the day.
As He walks hand in hand with you,
You will see His promises are true.
No need to doubt, no need to fear,
God has given us a brand new year.
