Prayer For A New Year
Grant me a little light, dear Lord,
by Grace Moore Kimata
That I may carry with me through the year,
A little bit of sunlight for my soul
To dry away a grief, to stop a tear.
Grant me a little flame to pierce the dark,
A little star to carry through the night,
A candle of compassion for my heart.
To hold, to give away -- a little light.
