The New Year

I timidly step in the darkness ahead
Looking back on the year that my Saviour has led

I timidly step in the darkness ahead
Looking back on the year that my Saviour has led
So unknown, so untried, doth the new year appear
That I step on the threshold with shrinking and fear


My child, I'll go with you each step of the way
My child, I will answer your call when you pray
There's nought of tomorrow that I cannot see
The darkness you fear is as daylight to me


My love is your mantle - a permanent stay
My word is the light that will lead you each day
My peace is the cord that will anchor your soul
To fulfill My purpose - to reach every goal.
