1 O brothers, how the years roll on,
Our years of promise, one by one!
The old year fades at still midnight;
The New Year comes with morning light.
Up, brothers, up, the New Year dawns;
Up, up, and gird your armor on;
Go forth to fight—’tis New Year’s morn!
’Tis New Year’s morn!

2 O brothers, how the years roll on,
And bring new duties, one by one!
We’ve work to do; make no delay;
The light that beams is New Year’s day.
Up, brothers, up, the New Year dawns;
Up, up, and gird your armor on;
Go forth to work—’tis New Year’s morn!
’Tis New Year’s morn!

3 O brothers, how the years roll on,
And bring new mercies, one by one!
Come with thanksgiving, come with prayer,
And greet the New Year’s morning fair!
Up, brothers, up, the New Year dawns;
Up, up, and gird your armor on;
Go forth in prayer—’tis New Year’s morn!
’Tis New Year’s morn!
