Lord Jesus, the First and the Last and the Living One, and who in your mercy has brought us safely to the beginning of another year, accept our thanksgiving for the blessing of the past, renew our strength and courage in the present, and direct all our ways in the future: for your glory and honour, who are the same, yesterday, today and for ever. Amen.
