Ring In New Bells To The New Sky-w

Each year is born like the bright berry from naked thorn
Take steps back, assess the old, be grateful to new morn
He who breaks a resolution is weak, who makes is a fool
We have one life to live, life not a dress rehearsal after all.

Year’s end is neither an end nor beginning, but a going on
Of the wisdom and experience can instill us of years bygone 
Bring no tear to any eye, harm not any heart, be at His call
We have one life to live, life not a dress rehearsal after all.

Banish worry, doubt, fear and live, love, be loved and laugh
Laugh with the light and weep not in the night that is enough.
Woo, wed, right the wrongs, take to wings, software reinstall.
We have one life to live, life not a dress rehearsal after all.

Ring in true, ring out the false, ring in new, ring out wild
Let it be said you have played well, lived, loved, labored
The year is going, you no power to stop, be a happy soul
We have one life to live, life not a dress rehearsal after all
