Blessing for the New Year 2017
Lord, as we now face the next New Year,
Let it be a time of grace.
A year of blessings that increase;
A year of favour and your peace
For all the human race.
For a new start I pray;
Let it begin this very day;
A time of healing for our woes,
A time of mercies when pardon flows
For those who go astray.
A time of goodness for those held dear,
A time of pardon for those we fear.
Lord, let this be a blessed year.
