Count your blessings instead of your crosses;
Count your gains instead of your losses;
Count your joys instead of your woes;
Count your friends instead of your foes;
Count your smiles instead of your tears;
Count your courage instead of your fears;
Count your kind deeds instead of your mean;
Count your health instead of your wealth;
Count on God instead of yourself.
May your Past be a pleasant memory,
Your Future filled with delights,
Your Now a glorious moment
That fills your Life with deep contentment.
Happy New Year!
Auld Lang Syne is a Scots poem written by Robert Burns in 1788 and set to the tune of a traditional folk song. It is well known in many countries, especially in the English-speaking world; it is traditionally sung to celebrate the start of the New Year at the stroke of midnight.
The song’s Scots title is translated as “for (the sake of) old times”.
