Subject(s): God; Holidays; New Year; Peace; Prayer

As before Thee, God,
I stand upon this threshold of the year,
With gratitude for strength and power
Given of Thyself to make me free;
And ask of Thee, one grace --
That Thou wouldst grant me
As the days unfold,
Courage for the greater sorrow,
Patience with the small;
And as the day shall end,
And I complete my task,
Grant me peace of heart,
In grateful knowledge
That for Thee there is no sleep,
That faithful watch Thou yet shall keep,
And stand again beside me
When I wake to face anew the day.
