The Turn of the Year

As one year ends and another begins
We cannot help but be reminded of your faithfulness
as we remember what you have done in years past
as we hope in what you will do in years to come

You are the one who makes all things new
we are the ones who still cling to our ‘old-ness’
despite the newness you offer

So Lord, at this, the turn of the year
come, and make us new
so that we may proclaim your newness
to those sick and tired of the old

We cannot give to you our years passed
but we can, and do, give all those yet to come
to you alone

Please take all our years
and make them yours
even as you make us yours.
