No Leftovers Today

Christmas took all my energies;
     it used up all my time.
My pocketbook is busted;
     I'm down to my last dime.

At church last night I heard the news
     my heart was glad to hear;
There's a way-out Way to happiness
     and God is very near.

Leftovers are the only thing
     that I have plenty of;
But God doesn't send leftovers
     when He gives us His love.

The Lord's gift is salvation
     so I gave Him my heart;
The New Year looks brighter, and
   off to a better start.

I said goodbye to leftovers
   of stress and aggravation;
I'm part of God's family now
     in joyful celebration.
