On the eve of something new

How wasteful are some
This night of hope

Attempting to erase the old
With drink and touch
Instead pull into the new
Regret and ache
What has been will be again
  What has been done will be done again
    There is nothing new under the sun

Washing the old with what is not new
Repeats vanity of vanities

Yet he broke the chains
Set us who were captive free
To give us something new under the sun
That which will not be done again
  The new creation has come
    The old has been replaced by the new

Steadfast love awaits
It is new every morning
