Another year has now begun
with silent pace its course to run;
our hearts and voices let us raise
to God in prayer and songs of praise.
Father, thy bounteous love we bless,
for gifts and mercies numberless;
for life and health, for grace and peace,
for hope of joys that never cease.
O Son of God, in faith and fear
teach us to walk as strangers here,
with hearts in heaven, that we may come
to where thou art, our Father's home.
Grant us, O Comforter, thy grace,
and speed us on our earthly race,
in body, spirit, and in soul,
right onward to the heavenly goal.
Thou, Lord, who makest all things new,
O give us hearts both pure and true;
that we, as jewels, ever thine,
in new Jerusalem may shine.
Blest Three in One, to thee we pray;
defend and guide us on our way;
that we at last with joy may see
the new year of eternity!
