IT IS A BRAND NEW YEAR.
CLEAN SLATE.
WHAT SHALL I HAVE ON IT BY YEAR'S END.
I HOPE AND PRAY I HAVE TOLD MY FAMILY AND THOSE I LOVE
THAT I DO LOVE THEM.


IT IS MY FERVENT PRAYER THAT MY COUNTRY IS STRONG AND FREE.
IT IS THIS MOTHER'S WISH THAT MY CHILDREN ARE ALL HEALTHY AND HAPPY.
THAT MY GRAND CHILDREN KNOW HOW LOVED THEY ARE.
THAT THEY KNOW IN THIS COUNTRY THEY HAVE THE FREEDOM TO BE ALL THEY CAN BE.


I PRAY THEY REACH FOR THE STARS AND THE MOON,
THAT THE LORD ABOVE TOUCHES THEM AS ONLY HE CAN.
THAT THIS OLD LADY IS PROUD TO BE AN AMERICAN AND HAS
TAUGHT THEM ALL TO BE PROUD TOO.
DADDY SAID TO ME AS A LIL GIRL, YOU ARE NO BETTER THAN ANY ONE ELSE,
BUT YOU ARE EVERY BIT AS GOOD AS ALL THE OTHERS.
IT WAS HARD TO GRASP AS A CHILD BUT I GET IT NOW.
I HAVE TRIED TO PASS IT ON.
