This New Year, I boldly declare that I am affirming my faith and loyalty to Jesus!
Oh many dark nights have I been through?
My heart is hardened. There is so much anger, hatred, judgement, pride……
My days have been pre-occupied with things that are self-serving, things that do not really matter.
But I am also aware that this is not me, not my nature.
I can only bend down to my knees with humility and come to the throne of grace, behold the face of Christ on the cross, and let his blood wash over me. Abounding grace and unfailing love– that is my Christ!
Yes I weep until I see Jesus in white robe at the corner of the room, and I hear the choral of angels sings.
I see the light and I am healed. He gives me peace and forgiveness and my heart is willing to love again.
Come Jesus come and vanish away the darkness. Come Jesus come!
O soul, are you weary and troubled? No light in the darkness you see? There’s a light for a look at the Savior, And life more abundant and free!
Turn your eyes upon Jesus, Look full in His wonderful face, And the things of earth will grow strangely dim, In the light of His glory and grace.
Through death into life everlasting He passed, and we follow Him there; Over us sin no more hath dominion— For more than conquerors we are!
His Word shall not fail you—He promised; Believe Him, and all will be well: Then go to a world that is dying, His perfect salvation to tell!
