Co-written with my good friend Linda-Marie Bariana**
In the New Year with love and good cheer,
endear the great future plan.
To the knowledge of self, to embrace God’s great wealth,
the health of a total life span.
With new resolutions and lofty conclusions,
intrusions into life seem maligned.
With firm application, sincere supplication,
dedication to God’s roadway defined.
Obtaining levels higher with fervent desire,
aspire to create newer dreams.
Obtaining these notions with ardent emotions,
devotion to God’s perfect themes.
In the New Year this all becomes clear,
His now and great future plan.
To all who will hear, this plan becomes dear,
the total restoration of man.
No longer hiding within subtle entrapments of sin,
any moment begins this new life.
The more thoughts harmonize, the more we realize
freedom from the strongholds of strife.
There awaits so much more with God’s Treasures in store,
so much more not even known.
But what is desired can surely be acquired
in a life where we are His own.
