Full Text

1 Through the changing seasons
Of the changing year,
With its light and shadow,
With its hope and fear;
Through each glad fulfillment,
And each sad defeat,
We have safely journeyed,
And again we meet.

Refrain:
God hath kindly led us
Through this changing year,
By His guiding providence
We assemble here.

2 Records past and present
We may now survey,
At this pleasant milestone
In life’s onward way:
Knowledge claims new power,
Truth her might extends,
And the Master knoweth
New and loyal friends. [Refrain]

3 From this festal service
To our work anew,
With a quickened purpose
Hearts both strong and true:
Father, lead Thy forces,
One united band—
Ever on to conquest
’Neath their king’s command. [Refrain]
