Ringing in the New Year

Ring in the New Year, let echoes resound!



Let New Year Bells
ring loud and clear
for all those near
and far to hear
let Peace descend
from Heaven above
to banish strife
from this Earth we love.



With Hope in our hearts
let us greet the new dawn
and welcome the year
that is being born.

To all my friends and those yet to be
a Happy New Year for you and for me!
