As this old year slides away, and another takes it's place, Lord let my heart be comforted by the knowledge of your grace. The grace that calls me from the past to live right here and now, When I'm hurting and my heart can't love, grace comes and shows me how. Your grace brings truth and mercy, when I'm struggling with my sin, You bring your healing words of life, I find my way again. Help me walk into this year renewed and fresh and clean, When others look into my life, let only your grace be seen. Grace that secures my weakness and the failures of the past, A mercy that knows of your forgiveness and a love that lasts and last. Dan Lillyblad First written 12-2004 Happy New Year.
