A New Year Prayer from  ‘Celtic Daily Prayer’, from the Northumbria Community.

This day is a new day

That has never been before.

This year is a new year,

The opening door. (Open the door)

Enter, Lord Christ;

We have joy in Your coming.

You have given us life;

And we welcome Your coming.

I turn now to face You;

I lift up my eyes,

Be blessing my face, Lord,

Be blessing my eyes.

May all my eye looks on

Be blessed and be bright,

My neighbours, my loved-ones,

Be blessed in Your sight.

You have given us life

And we welcome Your coming.

Be with us Lord,

We have joy, we have joy.

This year is a new year,

The opening door,

Be with us Lord,

We have joy, we have joy.
