Representative Text

1 Another year has pass’d away,
The New Year has begun;
We hope ‘twill be a happy year
To each and ev’ry one.

A glad new year—a bright new year—has dawn’d upon us all,
May richest blessings day by day upon us freely fall.

2 We’ve said to the old year, “good-bye,”
Its griefs and joys are past;
We’ll try to make this glad New year
Still better than the last. [Refrain]

3 We’ll seek to bless some burden’d life,
Some darken’d heart to cheer;
And deeds of kindness we will do
Each day of all the year. [Refrain]

4 We’ll try to point the lost to Him
Who dwells in light above;
Who will forgive if they believe,
And crown them with His love. [Refrain]
