1 Lord of life and light and blessing,
Filled with rev'rence, awe and fear,
We are standing at the portals
Of the gone, and coming year.

2 Thro' the portal new we enter,
And before us hangs a mist,
Freighted with the new year's burden
Darkness-flecked and sunlight-kissed.

3 But with hopeful hearts we enter,
Even tho' we cannot know
Whether, in the mist before us,
We are faced by weal or woe.

4 While we know that now, forever,
On the old the sun has set,
In the new, with mists uncertain,
God the Lord is with us yet.

5 Lord of life and light and blessing,
Thou with us, we do not fear,
But believe that Thou wilt lead us,
Safely in the coming year.
