The New Church Year Again Is Come

Representative Text

1 The new church year again is come
And wakes the joy of Christendom;
Thy King, O Zion, comes to thee,
Rejoice, rejoice eternally.
Have mercy, O Lord!

2 Now in our midst anew are heard
The lessons of God's holy Word
that lead the way to life and heav'n;
Lord, praise to Thee for this be giv'n.
Have mercy, O Lord!

3 Thy truth repeated o'er and o'er
Our faith will strengthen more and more;
Let it abide in us, that we
May join in endless praise to Thee.
Have mercy, O Lord!
