Do not call to mind the former things,
Or ponder the things of the past.
Behold, I will do something new,
Now it will spring forth;
Will you not be aware of it?
I will even make a roadway in the wilderness,
Rivers in the desert,
The beasts of the field will glorify Me;
The jackals and the ostriches;
Because I have given waters in the wilderness
And rivers in the desert,
To give drink to My chosen people.
The people who I formed for Myself
Will declare My praise.
In the new year, Lord, do something new in me. Create in me a clean heart and renew a right spirit within me. Make me aware: help my eyes to see the work of Your Hands, my ears to hear You, my mouth to drink from your River. I don't want to miss it. You are my Lord, my God, my Emmanuel.
