May the love of God surround you
Throughout this coming year,
And touch you in a special way
Assuring He is near.
May His words of hope uplift you
When you have a heavy heart,
Promises of His faithfulness
Leading you through the dark.
May His hand be ever-present
To lift a burden free,
And bring you to a place
Of thank you on your knees.
Your heart be filled with gladness as
He keeps you safe and sound,
Going about your daily tasks
With His protection all around.
May His provision flow unhindered
To keep you out of debt,
As you give to those less fortunate
Helping their needs be met.
Let His healing scriptures saturate
Your mind, body and soul,
To restore your health completely
And make you well and whole.
May His peace pour out upon you
Like a vessel of warm oil,
Soaking through your anxiousness
Bringing rest instead of toil.
And may He draw you closer
Reaching out to you below,
Holding you in His arms and heart
To never let you go.
