As we enter a new year of two thousand and nine I'm so glad and happy that Jesus is mine He purchased my own soul to give me eternal life And rescue me from Hell and this world of strife
This may or may not be the year I go to a better place But I know for sure he saved me by his grace If this year I stay on earth or go to that fair land May I ever be close to Jesus as he holds me in his hand
Lord help me to remember how great and wonderful you are That you can do anything and know the name of every star You hold the vast universe and gallaxies in the palm of your hand I know you will keep me even though I'm like a grain of sand
Whatever you call me to do this year or to go through Please give me a vision of the world through your view Help me love all the people you created of every race And let me not be ashamed to tell of your amazing grace
Help me to remember my life is but a vapor and quickly fading away This may be the last year I have to serve you in any way Too much of my life has already been wasted away in vain May I put that behind me now and press on toward what is gain
James 5:14 Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away.
