Prayer for the New Year

Just One Request

Dear Master, for this coming year
Just one request I bring:
I do not pray for happiness,
Or any earthly thing -
 I do not ask to understand 
The way Thou leadest me,
But this I ask: teach me to do
The thing that pleaseth Thee.

I want to know Thy guiding voice,
To walk with Thee each day.
Dear Master, make me swift to hear
And ready to obey.
And thus the year I now begin
A happy year will be -
If I am seeking just to do
The thing that pleaseth Thee."
