Representative Text

1 Hail the new year that's now begun,
Now let us all to God return;
From sinful ways may we all cease,
And with each other live in peace.

2 While thousands have been called away,
Yet still we live to see this day;
With thanks to God then all draw near,
To celebrate the happy year.

3 While many are sick and confined,
Others deprived of sense and mind,
We yet retain them bright and clear,
To celebrate the happy year.

4 Then let us all to God repair,
And offer him our praise and prayer,
Now unto him may we draw near,
To celebrate the happy year.

5 And no forsake all vice and sin,
And the new year with God begin;
Then with great joy we shall appear,
To celebrate the happy year.

6 Then truly happy such will be,
Who from all sin do always flee,
And unto Christ will now give ear;
Such we do wish a happy year.

7 All then who see their undone state,
Leaving their all for Jesus' sake,
To such we can with joy sincere,
Wish them a happy, happy year.

8 All those who are now born again,
And in Christ Jesus do remain,
All such as those we need not fear,
They will enjoy a happy year.

9 But true religion still we find,
Gives the most peace unto the mind;
Possessors of it will appear,
To wish as all a happy year.
