Another year hath fled ; renew,
Lord, with our days thy love !
our days are evil here and few ;
we look to live above:
we will not grieve, though day by day
we pass from earthly joys away ;
our joy abides in thee;
our joy abides in thee !
Yet, when our sins we call to mind,
we cannot fail to grieve;
but thou art pitiful and kind,
and wilt our prayer receive :
O Jesus, evermore the same,
our hope we rest upon thy Name ;
our hope abides in thee ;
our hope abides in thee !
For all the future, Lord, prepare
our souls with strength divine;
help us to cast on thee our care,
and on thy servants shine:
life without thee is dark and drear;
death is not death if thou art near;
our life abides in thee;
our life abides in Thee!
Arthur Tozer Russell (1806-1874)
