WHAT DO I WANT FOR THE NEW YEAR?
Picture by Daughter in law Laura Wittreich
I was in a dilemma.
What to do what to do?
I was trying to decide, between life and death.
Should I just give up?
Should I gone on? Or Keep trying?
The New Year was coming.
I being so tired of life, of sickness and hurting.
But then out of the blue
Came YOU MY LORD, CAME YOU.
Being so good that YOU are
Wanting only the best for me;
YOU sent me messages
YOU sent me love
The door to happiness YOU said is opened wide
It’s up to me to walk through.
My Dear Lord there YOU are.
My sweet LORD here I am.
Tell my mom hello
My sister too,
That I miss them so;
Help me Lord to be a better person,
To love more, to give more;
To sing more, to laugh more;
Help me sweet Lord to send seas of balloons
Up and up and away;
As I have gazed at your sweet glory
I see the precious sea of love
The unspeakable joy to speak your name,
Just to know your joyful remembering,
So my dear Lord please take this pain away.
Make this New Year a joy for me.
And just knowing you will help me be my best.
Makes my heart swill of laughter and
Your sweet love;
So Lord what do I want for the New Year?
You my Lord YOU!
