Another year hath fled, renew. A. T. Russell [0ld and New Year.] Written Nov. 20, 1850 (S. MSS.), and first published in his Psalms and Hymns, &c., 1851, No. 63, in 3 stanzas of 8 lines. In 1863 it was republished in Kennedy, No. 140, in a slightly altered form, but in Thring's Collection, 1882, No. 130, the original text is restored with the exception of stanza i., 1. 1, has for hath, and the repetition of the last line of each stanza which was repeated in the original to suit the tune to which the hymn was written. With the first line as "Another year has fled, renew," it is also in use in Canada, and other English-speaking countries.
