O Lord, our Lord, how excellent is Thy name in all the earth: who hast set Thy glory above the heavens. What is man that Thou art mindful of him: and the Son of Man that Thou visitest Him? Psalm. Thou, O Lord, art our Father and our Redeemer: Thy name is from everlasting.

Almighty and everlasting God, from whom cometh down every good and perfect gift, we give Thee thanks for all Thy benefits, temporal and spiritual, bestowed upon us in the year past, and we beseech Thee of Thy goodness, grant us a favorable and joyful year, defend us from all dangers and adversities, and send upon us the fullness of Thy blessing; through Jesus Christ, Thy Son, our Lord, who liveth, etc.

All the ends of the earth have seen the salvation of our God: make a joyful noise unto the Lord, all the earth.
V. The Lord hath made known His salvation: His righteousness hath He openly showed in the sight of the heathen. Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
V. God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in times past unto the fathers by the prophets: hath in these last days spoken unto us by His Son. Hallelujah!
Glory be to Thee, O Lord!
Praise be to Thee, O Christ!

KJV Jeremiah 31 Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah:32 Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; which my covenant they brake, although I was an husband unto them, saith the Lord:33 But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the Lord, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people.34 And they shall teach no more every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the Lord: for they shall all know me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them, saith the Lord: for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more.
3:24 Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith.
Some people are so contrary that they read this as the Law becoming obsolete (Antinomians, anti-Law). One pastor who preached this also denied the Creation - and soon he was an avowed atheist as well.
But the truth is the opposite of what the false teachers say. The Law is eternal, revealed clearly in Creation, where everything happens by command, order, cooperation, according to the will of God and the command of the Logos.
Besides, the Law commands what is good for us. However, Paul wrote to the Galatians, who were mixing the Law and the Gospel, as urged by the Law salesmen. His apostolic letter was so forceful that the issue did not come up again.
The Law teaches us about right and wrong, so we can realize what it means to be forgiven and to live in peace because of faith in Christ Jesus.
