(With earnest apologies to Bob Dylan)

May God bless you and keep you.

May your wishes all come true.

May you find your way through darkness.

And lead others through it, too.

May we see a gold horizon,

See our country start to mend.

May we stay forever faithful 

Faithful to the end.

Farewell 2020, year of pain, year of sorrow,

Year of death counts, year of crying.

Year of the caregivers, comforting the dying.

May we be forever grateful

And have faith our hearts will mend.

May we stay forever faithful,

Faithful to the end.

May we be builders of bridges,

Bridges of planks, steel and beams.

Build them for our children and for others

So that all might reach their dreams.

May we aspire to be righteous,

May we strive to know what’s true.

May we be forever vigilant 

For the con man and his crew.

So that was then, and this is now.

To a new year now we go.

May the road ahead be brighter,

For the country, far less woe.

May we build it back better,

As the president-in-waiting says.

May the lights keep burning

May our hearts keep yearning.

May we stay forever faithful

Faithful to the end.
