A Prayer Upon A Threshold
Here on my threshold, eager to start
Out through a New Year, Lord, I stand,
Waiting a moment, a prayer in my heart:
Go with me, Lord, and hold my hand.
There are such beautiful days ahead,
Blinding my eyes, Lord, may there be
Springs by the wayside, manna for bread,
And You, a companion, to walk with me.
Through any dark day, talk with me,
I am a small child, often afraid,
Lead through the darkness, let me see
Light ahead that Your lamp has made.
Here on the threshold, ready to start
Out through a year, untrod, unknown-
Now with a small child’s trusting heart
I go, but I do not go alone.
Grace Noll Crowell
Unless the LORD builds the house, those who build it labor in vain. Unless the LORD watches over the city, the watchman stays awake in vain.
The English Standard Version
Isn’t it funny how day by day nothing changes, but when you look back everything is different.
C. S. Lewis
