NEW YEAR'S RESOLUTION

A little less impatient with those we deem slow;
A little less of arrogance because of all we know.
A little more humility, seeing our worth is slight;
We are such little candles compared to stars at night!
A little more forgiving and trying to be kind;
A little more zealous the word of praise to find.

The word of praise to utter and make a heart rejoice.
A little bit more careful to speak with gentle voice;
A little more real effort to understand each other;
A little more striving to help in distress a brother;
A little more courage to each task that must be done;
These our resolutions -- God help us with every one.
