12. As We Count (On New Years Eve) (2:55)
words & music by Loretta Hagen

This is the final minute
Before the year runs out
May it take no good with it
And leave behind our peace and health

And as we bide this moment
All of our dreams abound
I wish for doors that open
And raise a glass as we count

10, 9, 8, 7, 6
The time piece ticks

And as we pass each second
Watching the ball come down
I hope that love will beckon
To every heart and spread around.

As we recite the numbers
Shouting among the crowd
I pray the trials that cumber
Fall away as we count

5, 4 with a loud roar
We start to cheer
3, 2, 1
I'm counting on
