What a way to end the year,
Gathered with friends that we hold dear!
Thanking God we made the drive tonight.
Through good and bad, happy and sad,
Sometimes a tear, but mostly glad,
Looking toward tomorrow's dawning light.
We never know how long we'll be,
How many days that we will see.
We'll rejoice and we'll be glad today!
Still we long for Paradise.
We're not rich in human eyes.
Contented, hopeful while to God we pray.
So to God our praises give,
Grateful, too, for where we live.
Bless our families while we laugh and sing!
So to close this year right now,
Guide us all. To You, we bow.
Bless us all, Dear Lord, our Priest and King.
Keep us out of Satan's path,
So that we won't see Your wrath.
Living true and never as pretend.
Watch us. Love us as we leave,
Finally now this New Year's Eve.
This we pray in Jesus' Name. Amen.
