Through the Hours of the New Year

On the first hour of the New Year,
My True Love gave to me
Mercy, comfort peace, and love
Within the Trinity.
On the second hour of the New Year,
My True Love gave to me
A load of hugs and calls
From friends and family.
On the third hour of the New Year,
My True Love gave to me
A thought to kneel and pray
To become what God wants me to be.
On the early hours of the New Year,
My True Love gave to me
Hours of comfort and rest
With dreams so heavenly.
On the noon hours of the New Year,
My True Love gave to me
More family and friends from afar
For my happy eyes to see.
On the evening hours of the New Year,
My True Love gave to me
A dinner for the household
To have a chance at some money.
On the late hours of the New Year,
My True Love gave to me
A home, a bath, and a bed,
And a night prayer on my knees.
