When it seems that we are actually, finally at our wit's end,
And we've seen the end of all that we can do,
That is when you are at your nearest, your most miraculous, your best.
Sometimes, the road we trudge seems destined
To be dusty and desolate forever.
And yet, just around the corner, just over the next hill,
We see new life, we see hope.
I pray for this hope for those who need it most.
May you bring them what they need,
That they may once again be dancing on this earth.
And as the dawn breaks on a new year,
Let us give thanks for all we hold dear:
Our health, our family and our friends.
May your year be filled with peace, prosperity and love.
May God's blessings shower upon you
And bestow upon each of you a bright, healthy and peaceful new year.
