1 Smiling in its virgin beauty,
Comes the merry New-Year Day—
Bright with hope and joy and gladness,
Like our childhood’s morning ray;
Happy greeting, happy greeting,
Parents, friends, and teachers dear!
Every heart beats high with pleasure
While we hail the new-born year.
2 Praise to Him whose love hath brought us
In these pure delights to share;
Let us not forget to thank Him
For His ever watchful care;
Happy New-Year, friends and teachers,
Happy New-Year, one and all!
May our Father’s richest blessing
On your pathway ever fall.
