“Thank You Lord for the year past gone.
2016 a changing song.
Welcome the year brand new;
2017 fresh as dew.
Waking each day to the morning long.
Mercies new and Your Strong Arm.
Laying my head at the end of each day,
Praising Your Faithfulness to guide the way.
Thank You for this gift of Life,
For in Your Son Jesus,
My heart delights!”
A Song of Ascents
“Come, bless the LORD, all you servants of the LORD,
Who stand by night in the house of the LORD!
Lift up your hands to the holy place and
Bless the LORD!
May the LORD bless you from Zion,
He Who made heaven and earth!”
I think it is “fitting” to find this as the last of the 15 Songs of Ascents.
(Pilgrimage songs believed to be sung as the people made their way up to Jerusalem to worship.)
May we too, like the pilgrims who on finishing their trip, their night, their journey for the year, they remembered to sing and
“Lift up your hands to the holy place and Bless the LORD!” Psalm 134:2
May you be blessed abundantly in the coming New Year 2017 as you finish your journey from the old into the Faithfulness of the new!
