A New Year’s Benediction

Written by Lisa DeVinney on . Posted in poetry

Dear friends, my prayer for you this year,
As time continues on,
Is that the Lord would bless you
As you greet each coming dawn.
And when the sun begins to set,
That He would grant you peace
And rest beneath His awesome wings;
A time of sweet release.
For He knows all your hearts’ desires;
He knows your every care.
And when you feel you need Him most,
Remember, He’s right there.
He’s faithful, loving, good and kind;
And promises His best
For each of us who, through His Son,
Have been forever blessed.
“You will go out in joy
and be led forth in peace;”
Isaiah 55:12a (NIV)
