Keep the Faith

ENID, Okla. — The New Year lies before you,

like a spotless track of snow...

be careful how you tread on it,

for every mark will show.

--

New Year’s prayer

Thank you Lord for giving me

The brand new year ahead

Help me live the way I should

As each new day I tread.

Give me gentle wisdom

That I might help a friend

Give me strength and courage

So a shoulder I might lend.

The year ahead is empty

Help me fill it with good things

Each new day filled with joy

And the happiness it brings.

Please give the leaders of our world

A courage born of peace

That they might lead us gently

And all the fighting cease.

Please give to all upon this earth

A heart that's filled with love

A gentle happy way to live

With Your blessings from above.

The Unknown Future

Life is a book in volumes three–

The past, the present, and the yet-to-be.

The past is written and laid away,

The present we’re writing every day,

And the last and best of volumes three

Is locked from sight — God keeps the key.

---

The Unknown

I do not know what still awaits,

Or what the morrow brings;

But with the glad salute of faith,

I hail its open wings!

For this I know — that in my Lord

Shall all my needs be met;

And I can trust the heart of him

Who has not failed me yet..

    “First, I believe that this nation should commit itself to achieving the goal, before this decade is out, of landing a man on the moon and returning him safely to the Earth,” he said.
