Happy 2010

As I sit here thinking about the new year that's quickly approaching us,  as well as of the beautiful messages we heard at church, last night -- Let's make the new year one of Separation [unto God], Service, & Stewardship -- this song seems to be perfectly fitted for the theme -  as a prayer on my heart, if you will... 
Another year is dawning, dear Father, let it be
In working or in waiting, another year with Thee.
Another year of progress, another year of praise,
Another year of proving Thy presence all the days.

Another year of mercies, of faithfulness and grace,
Another year of gladness in the shining of Thy face;
Another year of leaning upon Thy loving breast;
Another year of trusting, of quiet, happy rest.

Another year of service, of witness for Thy love,
Another year of training for holier work above.
Another year is dawning, dear Father, let it be
On earth, or else in Heaven, another year for Thee.
Happy 2010, everyone!
