New Year's Eve Rhyme: 2009

Hark! the welkin's ring is sounding
As the New Year in is bounding.
Good riddance we say to 2009
Let's hope 2010 is much more fine.

QG sends out greetings for the New Year
To all the Gentle Readers here.
To RevGals, Presbybloggers and lurkers all
Wishes for many blessings to y'all.

As the Old Year fades away
Lift your glass and salute the day.
As the night spreads across the sky
We'll happily bid 2009 good-bye.

We don't know what 2010 will bring
And yet our praises we will sing
To God on High whose sovereign power
Spreads over all each and every hour.

May God take our fears, our stress, our woe,
And show us how His blessings flow
Over each of us, because God knows our needs
And sends grace to save us despite our deeds.

So let us on with joyful feet
As tomorrow New Year's Day we'll greet.
Our confidence not in men, but God,
Our hope, our stay, our guiding rod.

HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL!
