    Another year is dawning, dear Father, let it be
    In working or in waiting, another year with Thee.
    Another year of progress, another year of praise,
    Another year of proving Thy presence all the days.

    Another year of mercies, of faithfulness and grace,
    Another year of gladness in the shining of Thy face;
    Another year of leaning upon Thy loving breast;
    Another year of trusting, of quiet, happy rest.

    Another year of service, of witness for Thy love,
    Another year of training for holier work above.
    Another year is dawning, dear Father, let it be
    On earth, or else in Heaven, another year for Thee.

    For this New Year we humbly ask Your grace;
    Help us to always see Your loving face
    Shining upon us, bringing peace within,
    Keeping our feet from paths of mortal sin.

    Dear Lord, we ask that we would always be
    Open to You, and that all men may see
    In how we treat them that we’ve made a pact.
    To let Your love shine through our ev’ry act.

    Within our fam’lies may we know Your peace;
    As we share moments let our love increase.
    Teach us to share with those we truly love
    As we would do so in that home above

    Now for Your church, Lord, we would give You thanks,
    All kinds of people making up her ranks;
    Help her be true in all she longs to do
    That ev’ry act shall praise and honor You.

    For this Your world, dear Lord, we beg You now
    Beat ev’ry sword blade into humble plow;
    We seek that peace that we can help to bring
    When we acknowledge You as Lord and King.

    For me, O Lord, this too I simply ask;
    Help me to not shirk my appointed task,
    Teach me to trust, Lord, walking day by day,
    In simple faith that You show me Your way.

    Many of us have children that go back to school this week. So for them Id like to give up this one, and maybe one morelater in the week .
    Kids keep it safe this year!
    And for all Goodness sakes learn something!!!
    One of my Daughters was running around tonight singing this one

    [size=150][color=green]I hear the Savior say,
    “Thy strength indeed is small;
    Child of weakness, watch and pray,
    Find in Me thine all in all.â€

    Ere you left your room this morning,
    Did you think to pray?
    In the name of Christ our Savior,
    Did you sue for loving favor,
    As a shield today?

    O how praying rests the weary!
    Prayer will change the night to day;
    So when life seems dark and dreary,
    Don’t forget to pray.

    When you met with great temptation,
    Did you think to pray?
    By His dying love and merit,
    Did you claim the Holy Spirit
    As your guide and stay?

    When your heart was filled with anger,
    Did you think to pray?
    Did you plead for grace, my brother,
    That you might forgive another
    Who had crossed your way?

    When sore trials came upon you,
    Did you think to pray?
    When your soul was bowed in sorrow,
    Balm of Gilead did you borrow
    At the gates of day?

    God, the Hope of those who pray,
    God, our Help where here we stay,
    Life of those who pass away:
    We beseech Thee, hear us.

    Hear us for the men who fight
    For our honor and the right,
    Shield them with Thy glorious might:
    We beseech Thee, hear us.

    Father, Thou Who lovest all,
    Help them when on Thee they call,
    Ever keep them lest they fall:
    We beseech Thee, hear us.

    Christ, who died to right the wrong,
    Make our brothers brave and strong,
    Though the war be fierce and long:
    Hear us, holy Jesus.

    By Thy cross, O Christ, draw near
    Those who die, that they may hear
    Thine own voice, and have no fear:
    Hear us, holy Jesus.

    Holy Spirit, come, we pray,
    Guide our country day by day
    In the high and holy way:
    Hear us, Holy Spirit.

    Make us all a worthier race,
    Formed and strengthened by Thy grace,
    Make this world a holier place:
    Hear us, Holy Spirit.

    May every Hand and heart and voices raise, with Praise and Glory to our Lord.

    Come and let us sweetly join,
    Christ to praise in hymns divine;
    Give we all with one accord
    Glory to our common Lord.

    Sing we then in Jesus’ Name,
    Now as yesterday the same;
    One in every time and place,
    Full for all of truth and grace.

    Sing we then in Jesus’ Name,
    Now as yesterday the same;
    One in every time and place,
    Full for all of truth and grace.

    We for Christ, our Master, stand,
    Lights in a benighted land:
    We our dying Lord confess;
    We are Jesus’ witnesses.

    Witnesses that Christ hath died,
    We with Him are crucified;
    Christ hath burst the bands of death,
    We His quickening Spirit breathe.

    Strive we, in affection strive;
    Let the purer flame revive,
    Such as in the martyrs glowed,
    Dying champions for their God.

    Make us all in Thee complete,
    Make us all for glory meet,
    Meet to appear before Thy sight,
    Partners with the saints in light.

    We, like them, may live and love;
    Called we are their joys to prove,
    Saved with them from future wrath,
    Partners of like precious faith.

    Let the fruits of grace abound;
    Let in us Thy vowels sound;
    Faith, and love, and joy increase,
    Temperance and gentleness.

    Plant in us Thy humble mind;
    Patient, pitiful, and kind,
    Meek and lowly let us be,
    Full of goodness, full of Thee.

    Christ is now gone up on high,
    Where to Him our wishes fly;
    Sits at God’s right hand above;
    There with Him we reign in love!

    Come, Thou high and lofty Lord!
    Lowly, meek, incarnate Word!
    Humbly stoop to earth again,
    Come and visit abject men!

    Hands and hearts and voices raise,
    Sing as in the ancient days;
    Antedate the joys above,
    Celebrate the feast of love.

    Jesus, dear expected guest,
    Thou art bidden to the feast,
    For Thyself our hearts prepare,
    Come, and sit, and banquet there!

    Jesus, we Thy promise claim,
    We are met in Thy great Name;
    In the midst do Thou appear,
    Manifest Thy presence here!

    Sanctify us, Lord, and bless,
    Breathe Thy Spirit, give Thy peace,
    Thou Thyself within us move,
    Make our feast a feast of love.

    Call, O call us each by name,
    To the marriage of the Lamb;
    Let us lean upon Thy breast,
    Love be there our endless feast!

    Let us join, (’tis God commands)
    Let us join our hearts and hands
    Help to gain our calling’s hope,
    Build we each the other up.

    God His blessings shall dispense,
    God shall crown His ordinance;
    Meet in His appointed ways;
    Nourish us with social grace.

    Let us then as brethren love,
    Faithfully His gifts improve,
    Carry on the earnest strife,
    Walk in holiness of life.

    Still forget the things behind,
    Follow Christ in heart and mind,
    Toward the mark unwearied press,
    Seize the crown of righteousness.

    Plead we thus for faith alone,
    Faith which by our works is shown:
    God it is Who justifies;
    Only faith the grace applies.

    Active faith that lives within,
    Conquers earth, and hell, and sin,
    Sanctifies, and makes us whole,
    Forms the Savior in the soul.

    Let us for this faith contend,
    Sure salvation is its end:
    Heaven already is begun,
    Everlasting life is won.

    Only let us persevere,
    Till we see our Lord appear,
    Never from the Rock remove,
    Saved by faith, which works by love.

    Partners of a glorious hope,
    Lift your hearts and voices up,
    Jointly let us rise, and sing
    Christ our Prophet, Priest, and King.

    Monuments of Jesus’ grace,
    Speak we by our lives His praise;
    Walk in Him we have received,
    Show we not in vain believed.

    While we walk with God in light,
    God our hearts doth still unite;
    Dearest fellowship we prove,
    Fellowship in Jesus’ love.

    Sweetly each, with each combined,
    In the bonds of duty joined,
    Feels the cleansing blood applied,
    Daily feels that Christ hath died.

    Still, O Lord, our faith increase,
    Cleanse from all unrighteousness,
    Thee the unholy cannot see;
    Make, O make us meet for Thee!

    Every vile affection kill,
    Root out every seed of ill,
    Utterly abolish sin,
    Write Thy law of love within.

    Hence may all our actions flow,
    Love the proof that Christ we know;
    Mutual love the token be,
    Lord, that we belong to Thee

    Love, Thine image, love impart!
    Stamp it on our face and heart!
    Only love to us be given!
    Lord, we ask no other heaven.

    Some time this weekend, choose a person and tell him or her just what Christ has done for you.
    God Bless you all.
    To Make a deliberate decision to bring Christ into your Home, into your Family, into your Life, is a choice you will never regret. People will follow, you can count on it

    God says whosoever believes on His Son,
    Has pardon obtained and a new life begun;
    His sins blotted out, not by aught he has done,
    But thro’ faith in the Word of God!

    His Word is a strong eternal rock,
    Unshaken it stands thro’ fiercest shock;
    Though Satan and all his hosts may mock,
    I have faith in the Word of God!

    And God will make righteous and cleanse from all sin
    The one who the chiefest of sinners has been;
    He sanctifies wholly and justifies him
    Who has faith in the Word of God!

    O soul without God, without hope, without peace,
    Just now come to Him, let your doubtings all cease;
    He says He’ll receive you, your joys will increase,
    O have faith in the Word of God.

    Pray, pray, when things go wrong,
    And gloomy fears around you throng;
    The loving God your voice will hear,
    Look up to Him, He’s always near.

    Pray, pray though your eyes grow dim,
    Go with your troubles straight to Him;
    Pray, pray, for God understands;
    Have faith, leaving all in His dear hands.

    Pray, pray, be calm and still,
    Whatever comes must be His will;
    His promises like buds unfold,
    Naught that is good will He withhold.

    Pray, pray till faith grows strong,
    And in your heart rings Heaven’s song;
    Till self shall die in pure desire,
    And every thought to Him aspire.

    The world is very evil, the times are waxing late,
    Be sober and keep vigil, the Judge is at the gate.
    The Judge Who comes in mercy, the Judge Who comes in might,
    Who comes to end the evil, who comes to crown the right.

    Arise, arise, good Christian, let right to wrong succeed;
    Let penitential sorrow to heavenly gladness lead,
    To light that has no evening, that knows nor moon nor sun,
    The light so new and golden, the light that is but one.

    O home of fadeless splendor, of flowers that bear no thorn,
    Where they shall dwell as children who here as exiles mourn;
    ’Midst power that knows no limits, where wisdom has no bound,
    The beatific vision shall glad the saints around.

    The peace that is for Heaven, and shall be too for earth,
    The palace that re-echoes with festal song and mirth;
    The garden breathing spices, the paradise on high;
    Grace beautified to glory, unceasing minstrelsy.

    O happy, holy portion, reflection for the blest,
    True vision of true beauty, true cure of the distressed!
    Strive, man, to win that glory; toil, man, to gain that light;
    Send hope before to grasp it, till hope be lost in sight.

    O sweet and blessèd country, the home of God’s elect!
    O sweet and blessèd country, that eager hearts expect!
    Jesu, in mercy bring us to that dear land of rest;
    Who art with God the Father and Spirit, ever blest.
