Good by old year, you're a memory now,
You have become a part of my past,
You started out bright and hopeful,
Your days just quickly passed.
Some of those days were difficult,
So many were happy and bright,
The wonderful times I'll remember,
The others I'll keep out of sight.
God bless you old year for good memories,
Together we did our best,
So long, your time has ended,
Go now to your well earned rest.
Hello New Year, I welcome you,
I don't know what will come my way,
I do know that God will walk with me,
And help me stand tall every day.
Your pages are waiting for me to fill in,
I will do the best that I can,
Living each day to the fullest,
Lending a helping hand.
Thankful for my family and friends,
Enjoying the days that you bring,
So many wonderful blessings,
My soul will surely sing.
Oh bright New Year, you will hurry on,
I know you cannot last,
It won't take long until you too,
Will be part of my past.
