The Old and New Year.
Secret faults and undescried,
Meet Thy spirit-piercing view. Blessed Saviour ! yet, through Thee, Pray that these may pardoned be.
Holy Spirit ! Breath of balm ! Fall on us in evening's calm : Yet awhile, before we sleep, We with Thee will vigil keep. Lead us on our sins to muse ;
Give us truest penitence ; Then the love of God infuse,
Breathing humble confidence ; Melt our spirits, mould our will, Soften, strengthen, comfort still!
Blessed Trinity ! be near
Through the hours of darkness drear;
When the help of man is far,
Ye more clearly present are.
Father ! Son ! and Holy Ghost \\
Watch o'er our defenceless head, Let Your angels' guardian host
Keep all evil from our bed, Till the flood of morning rays Wake us to a song of praise.
The Old and New Yea?\
Now, gracious Lord, Thine arm reveal, And make Thy glory known ;
Now let us all Thy presence feel, And soften hearts of stone!
