Begin the New Year

Begin the new year
with love in your heart,
and the year will be better
right from the start.
Resolve to yourself 
to live each day
treating others
in a loving way.

Begin the new year
with a smile on your face,
as you spread your love
in every place.
Throughout the year
as you let your joy show,
lives will be brighter
wherever you go.

Begin the new year,
as you pass through each season,
with hope deep within
that God is the reason
that love and joy
are flowing to you
and will continue
all the year through.
