The Old and New Year.                297
As the winged arrow flies
Speedily the mark to find ; /\.s the lightning from the skies
Darts, and leaves no trace behind ; Swiftly thus our fleeting days
Bear us down life's rapid stream : Upward, Lord ! our spirits raise !
All below is but a dream.
Thanks for mercies past receive ;
Pardon of our sins renew ; Teach us, henceforth, how to live
With eternity in view : Bless Thy word to young and old ;
Fill us with a Saviour's love; And, when life's short tale is told,
May we dwell with Thee above !
John Newton. 1779.
CCLXXIX.
For Thy mercy and Thy grace, Faithful through another year, Hear our song of thankfulness, Father, and Redeemer, hear !
In our weakness and distress, Rock of strength ! be Thou our stay ! In the pathless wilderness Be our true and living way !
Who of us death's awful road In the coming year shall tread ? With Thy rod and staff, O God, Comfort Thou his dying head !
