As we draw to the end of another year
We think of the ones that we hold so dear;
We pause to give thanks for our friends so true ,
And ask God to bless them, the old and new.
We hold up each loved one before His Throne
And ask Him to comfort the ones alone,
For those who have lost someone they hold dear,
We ask Him to strengthen and hold them near.

And those with new babies, or newly wed,
We ask Him to smooth out the path ahead;
For those who are ill and can barely stand,
We ask for the touch of His healing hand.
For those with new homes, with new jobs and new stress,
We ask Him to crown all their plans with success.
For those who have dreams and think, "It's now or never,"
We ask Him to bless all that they should endeavor.
For those who are facing an uphill climb
We ask Him to carry them through this time.

As we come to the start of a brand new year,
We pray for the ones that we hold so dear.
We ask that each one will be soundly blest,
To taste of His goodness and know His best;
For angels to watch o'er them day and night,
For miracles, blessings and sheer delight!
We ask for the gifts that the world can't buy:
A glimpse at the wonders of Heaven on high,
Contentment and joy till the Lord comes again,
This we ask for our friends, in His name, Amen.
