Representative Text

1 O dear little New Year,
All so bright and joy,
Have you any message
For a girl or boy?

2 Listen, little children,
Down to earth I come,
Bringing you this message,
From your Father’s home.

3 Jesus loves you, children:
Love Him then always,
Do some willing service
For Him every day.

4 Ask Him now to help you
At your work and play;
Jesus always listens
When the children pray.

5 Thus I’ll bring you gladness,
If you’re good and true;
And you’ll find this new year
Will be blest to you.
