The Year is Yours

by Emma Martindale

God built and launched this year for you,
Upon the bridge you stand;
It’s your ship, your very own ship,
And you are in command.
Just what the twelve month’s trip will do
Rests wholly, solely, friend, with you.
Your log book kept from day to day–
My friend, what will it show?
The log will tell, like guiding star
The sort of captain that you are.
For weal or wore, this year is yours;
Your ship is on life’s sea.
Your acts as captain must decide
Which ever it will be.
So now in starting on your trip
We ask God to help you sail your ship.
