The morning dawns in glory, and the night
Wraps up its somber garments in its flight;
My soul awakes from dreaming,
And my eyes
Survey God’s sunburst beaming
From the skies.
I seem to hear Thee saying, “Soon the night
Of earth will pass forever, and the light
Of glory will be breaking
Eternal morn be waking
THE New Year means an everlasting farewell to the Old Year. We may not relive the “old”; but we may, by God’s help, redeem the “new.”
We face the New Year in the joy of new possibilities, and in the settled purpose to redeem the time. The first day of January always seems radiant with glory, calling us to new undertakings and accomplishments.
For the moment we pause and look into God’s great coming new year, the Year of Jubilee, which awaits this sad, sin-stricken earth. As the old year passes, and a New Year dawns, even so will the old things pass away, and all things be made new.
Gems of Gold includes a meditation for each day of the year. Beginning with a Scripture, followed by a song or a poem, and ending with a thought by the author, each page is Bible-centered and Christ-exalting. The book will impart inspirational and challenging truths to God’s children.
