Another year has passed away, In silence, gone forever

Another year has passed away, In silence, gone forever

Author: Gilbert Nash
Tune: [Another year has passed away]
Published in 4 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Another year has passed away,
In silence gone forever;
Yet memory shall bid it stay.
Its acts shall perish never!

Chorus:
Our prayers and praise this day we raise
To him who all things freely gives,
That by his side we may abide, abide,
Where he forever perfect lives.

2 And has it passed away unblessed?
Have all its hours been wasted?
Not all, yet far too much in rest
The joys of God we've tasted. [Chorus]

3 And does the lesson we receive,
Bid us to faint in sorrow?
Oh no! it bids us look and live,
And hope from faith to borrow. [Chorus]

4 And forward, in the coming year,
We'll strive to win the blessing,
And tho' in darkness never fear,
The love of God confessing. [Chorus]
