What is Just Around the Bend?

Lord, I don’t pretend to know what’s round the bend,
But I know you are already there and you know where
I am heading; you’ve set the course and you’re the force
That propels me forward toward an unknown goal —
Unknown to me, not you; this is most certainly true —
So few are my options but to take your hand
And join myself to your wandering band . . .
Yes, the future may look bleak and I am assuredly weak,
But you, meek and strong, came to seek and to save me;
Will you abandon me, leave me branded but stranded?
No! You have said you will never leave nor forsake me!
So let it be! Bring in the New Year, then, and let me sing!
Ring the heavenly bells for better days ‘n brighter ways!
Lord, I don’t pretend to know what’s round the bend;
Nevertheless, let me say, ‘Happy New Year’ with cheer!
