Fresh New Year

    A fresh new year

    Is bringing, one by one,

    Unopened days,

    Each laden with a miracle.

    In countless ways

    Its gifts will lift our spirits

    And make us sing.

    What can I bring the fresh new year,

    Oh, what to bring?

    Greet the year with courage and trust,

    A wealth of love; and, oh, you must

    Bring wonderment and a happy heart,

    A spark of humor; then impart

    A glowing warmth, free from fear,

    And gladness for each day all year.
