Grateful to God, the Source of 2022 gifts My heart praises HIM with worshipful bliss For innumerable blessings from His heart of love Indeed perfect, timely, custom-made for me; thus best. The Lord’s presence* keeps me blest midst gladness-glow Since my soul He assures with redemption’s security To vanquish angst brought by condemning guilt Making my 2022 surely triumphant. Safeguarded in the Creator's gentle hands Along His omnipotent truth- guidance against harm My steps are propelled to tread toward righteousness-paths Directed well, though allured by glistening ephemeral stardom. Led through the omniscient wisdom of the Sovereign Master My mind wins over qualms that uncertainties pose Since He knows my all including future stature Even health and well-being He sustains. With the Saviour’s protective-seal Conquering attacks of crises-filled strain My faith is strengthened for prayer fervency As I abound in gratitude midst stewardship fruitfulness. Thankful for the Saviour’s light that illumines against doubts My spirit basks around His forgiveness’ embrace Resting in serene mercy that settles unbelief For vibrant sharing of wondrous hope. Endowed with role-fulfillment privileges My commitment is empowered by the Lord To serve by His offered partnership settlement Conquering temptation, upholding vow of devotion. In the Almighty’s compassion-fortress, verily shielded I remain joyously blest among family and friends While reaching-out for mission pursuits Extending blessings to multiply.
