Celtic New Year’s Prayer – The Opening Door

Posted in Celtic Prayers, New Year's Prayer at 6:00 pm by davebayne

This day is a new day
That has never been before.
This year is a new year,
the opening 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.
