A New Year Has Dawned

New hymn lyrics to ring in the new year…



yanton.net

A new year now has dawned
inviting us to dream
of unity the likes of which
we've never seen.
God, give us grace
to mend our ways
and turn away
from what we've been.

A new year now has dawned
inviting us to do
those acts of love
we have put off
You've called us to.
God, give us grace
to start afresh and see each task
as serving You.

A new year now has dawned
inviting us to dare
to be the hands
and feet of Jesus everywhere.
God, give us grace
that we might risk
and in our risking really care.

A new year now has dawned
inviting us to be
a church that models hope
in our community.
God, give us grace
to claim a future marked by love
and dignity.

tune: Rejoice, the Lord is King
