No Auld Lang Syne For Me

New Year’s Eve Alternative Song

With all due respect to Guy Lombardo and Dick Clark, I’ve never been a big fan of the Auld Lang Syne song tradition that has been passed down from generation to generation. Last New Year’s Eve I posted this on Facebook which, for me, more appropriately sets the tone for closing out the year and sets the stage for the upcoming year.  

From Facebook-Dec. 31, 2009

Oh what a year it has been! Highs and lows with challenges on every level, personally, professionally, and physically, but through it all the one consistent in everything is God’s spirit alive in me and my desire to leverage my life in Christ better now than before!

So once again as this year comes to a close and another year begins,

I’ll Stand With Arms High 

trusting God period 

 

You stood before creation
Eternity within Your hand
You spoke the earth into motion
My soul now to stand

You stood before my failure
Carried the Cross for my shame
My sin weighed upon Your shoulders
My soul now to stand

So what can I say
What can I do
But offer this heart O God
Completely to You

So I’ll walk upon salvation
Your Spirit alive in me
This life to declare Your promise
My soul now to stand

So what can I say
What can I do
But offer this heart O God
Completely to You

So I’ll stand
With arms high and heart abandoned
In awe of the One who gave it all

So I’ll stand
My soul Lord to You surrendered
All I am is Yours

 

Wishing Everyone a Blessed New Year!
