The old year dies

Full Text

1. The old year dies, the new is born;
Grant, Lord, in us as well,
The old and sinful self may die,
The new thy praises swell.

2. The glad New Year that dawns for us,
Our Lord's return may see,
When all the ransomed Church with him
For evermore shall be.

3. O blessed Son of God Most High,
The God whom we adore,
Be honor, praise and glory given,
Both now and evermore.

4. To Father, Son and Holy Ghost,
The God whom we adore,
Be honor, praise and glory given,
Both now and evermore.
