GIVING THANKS FOR THE NEW YEAR
The words of Herb Brokering are a special way to begin this New Year, with THANKS!
We give you thanks for earth and sky,
for heavens, stars, and sea,
and for the wonderment of love
inside God’s family.
You give us birth, all life, new years
of ecstasy and love;
we eat, we drink your daily gift
on earth as from above.
By faith you keep us near your side
to be our dearest friend.
Now lead us through new miracles
to heavens without end.
Help us to dig where wells run dry
and lift your drink on high,
to share your wealth with humankind
and know your reason why.
Today bless those who to this day
have grown your love in me.
to hold my heart upon the way
inside Christ’s family.
Thank You, Herb!
