Another year is now over
And there's a new one on the way
With some fresh New Year's Resolutions
And bright promises to make.
So many things you wanted to do,
So many bad habits to throw away.
So many hopeful new horizons
Just waiting over the way.
All the could'ves, would'ves, should'ves
And all the things you wanted to say.
But - why wait until tomorrow,
When you can begin today?
Why wait for another year to pass by,
For twelve more months to fly away?
When God's mercies are new every morning.
He gives us a new beginning every day.
So why wait until tomorrow,
When you can begin anew today?
