The campaign call Have a Happy, Messianic, New Year!

Instead of entering 2013 with frivolity (another round of drinks), frustration (Wall Street and Washington), or fear (the European economic meltdown, Iran's next move), let’s enter it exuberantly celebrating the Messiah who is and who was who is to come. (Rev. 1:8)

 

Here's the idea of this simple, totally unofficial campaign. Everyone already knows the New Year’s Eve song that starts, “Should old acquaintance be forgot and never brought to mind . . .” Let’s take over that old drinking song (“Auld Lang Syne”) and turn it to God’s purposes.

 

Nobody (except the true Scots) can sing more than the first two lines of it anyway, and few of the rest of us have any idea why we are singing it. Let’s replace the dead traditional words with some new ones we can belt out joyfully to the glory of the Father, the Son, and the Spirit.

 

The new version is called, "Let This be the Year." Let’s sing this new song to the Lord (Is. 42:10) with our friends and families at midnight on New Year’s Eve. Let’s sing it in our churches on the first Sunday of the New Year, January 6th. Let’s sing it for the whole year. Let’s honor him and welcome him.

 

“When the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on the earth?” (Lk. 18:8) Absolutely yes, wherever this new song is sung from the heart, he will. Click for lyrics. Enjoy.
