This Year is Yours

Alfred Lord Tennyson

God built and launched this year for you;

Upon the bridge you stand;

It’s your ship, aye, your own ship,

And you are in command.

Just what the 12 months’ trip will do

Rests wholly, solely, friend, with you.

Your logbook kept from day to day

My friend, what will it show?

Have you on your appointed way

Made progress, yes or no?

The log will tell, like guiding star,

The sort of captain that you are.

For weal or woe this year is yours;

Your ship is on life’s sea

Your acts, as captain, must decide

Whichever it shall be;

So now in starting on your trip,

Ask God to help you sail your ship.
