1 Nu træde vi til et nyt Aar,
O Herre Gud, som med os gaar,
Bevar os nu og al vor Tid
Fra Hunger, Dyrtid, Sot og Strid,
Giv hver en Stand og hvert et Sted
At nyde din den søde Fred!

2 Giv, at dit Ord og Sakrament
Ret aldrig vorder fra os vendt,
Send din Velsignelse herned,
Kron Aaret med din Miskundhed!
Din Naade giv, den er os nok;
Det beder al din kristne Flok.
