All of our tomorrows – a Song for the New Year

Jamie Byrd   -  

As we enter the new year we’re excited to introduce a new song to our church on New Year’s Sunday.

It’s drawn from Psalm 139:16 God knows every one of our days and holds them in his hand before we even live them. It speaks of our tendencies in our planning “zealous youth” and “cautious age” and how our steps are not to be guided by either but by our trust in our great shepherd.

I’m excited for Jamie to introduce it to us this morning in worship.


This spinning world by Your own hand
Hurls ever on around the sun
The seasons march at Your command
The old departs, the new year comes
And though celestial is Your gaze
You search and care for all our ways
We offer up to You this day
And all of our tomorrows

May zealous youth and cautious age
Determine not the steps we choose
Great Shepherd, guide us through each day
Oh, how we want to follow You
Come Living Way, our way make clear
Let perfect love drive out our fear
Be Thou our vision, now and here
And all of our tomorrows

When winter makes us reminisce
Of warmer days so distant now
Of cherished saints the sun once kissed
Whose beauty passed behind the clouds
Let all our fond and longing tears
Remind us we are pilgrims here
We trust You, Sovereign of our years
With all of our tomorrows

Hands to the plow, we’re pressing on
And running hard to win the prize
Empowered by the love of God
With grace before and grace behind
For lo, what hope before us stands
You finish all that You began
Eternal joy is in Your hands
And all of our tomorrows
