Representative Text

1 Another varied year has passed,
With all its joy and pain,
And God our Father keeps us still,
And lets us meet again.

We’re happy, friends to meet you,
With joyful songs we greet you,
And pray that God may bless you,
With a happy, glad New Year.

2 O may the year forever flown
To each a lesson be—
That this, the glad new year to come
May from its faults be free. [Refrain]

3 And when life’s changing year is o’er,
If we’ve been truly good,
We’ll meet upon that golden shore
All saved through Jesus’ blood. [Refrain]
