The year lies before as fresh fallen snow

No tracks yet appear, no drifts from a blow

Tis a picture of beauty, a blanket of peace

They’re gifts from above to grant us release.

 

The year lies before as fresh fallen snow

It covers the past with its failure and woe

T’was a year of some progress, though muddied by regress

Thank God for redemption, for love and forgiveness.

 

The year lies before as fresh fallen snow

It’s a scene of pure grace — a painting from God

It calls us to feel, to think, and to do

About the lives that we lead and the chance to renew.

 

The year lies before as fresh fallen snow

It invites us to know which way we should go

It cannot remain in the silence of sleep

It must be disturbed by my hands and my feet.

 

The year lies before as fresh fallen snow

It will soon bear the marks of time’s oft repeat

But we can choose what the marks will say

Creating new life for a brand new day!
