Opening up a new year like a gift from one now passed.
Searching for solutions for mistakes that have been cast.
Trying hard to change the errors we have skewed.
Looking up with hope again. Our lives will be renewed.
We try – we fail – we try again to reach our simple goals,
But there is nothing we can do to wash our blemished souls.
There is but one clear answer to the darkness here inside.
Just look to Jesus, God’s own Son who for our sins has died.
He came to live among us – to feel the hurt we know.
He left His throne in heaven to dwell on earth below.
He died, but then He rose again to prove He conquered death.
He never leaves our aching hearts. He’s in our every breath.
