1 Another year of setting suns,
Of stars by night revealed,
Of springing grass, of tender buds,
By winter’s snow concealed.
2 Another year of summer’s glow,
Of autumn’s gold and brown,
Of waving fields, and ruddy fruit
The branches weighing down.
3 Another year of happy work
That better is than play;
Of simple care, and love that grows
More sweet from day to day.
4 Another year of baby mirth
And childhood’s blessèd ways;
Of thinker’s thought, and prophet’s dream,
And poet’s tender lays.
5 Another year at Beauty’s feast,
At every moment spread;
Of silent hours, when grow distinct
The voices of the dead.
6 Another year to follow hard
Where better souls have trod;
Another year of life’s delight;
Another year of God!
