A New Year's Hymn

A hymn of thanksgiving for the New Year. Thanks for the harvest, for the gospel, for the seasons. The hymn is full of appreciation and thanks for all that the Lord has given in the past year, and hopes for the coming year. This hymn is a prayer of worship for all that God has done during the year.

Hymns and poems can be considered prayers to God. Raising our voices to give Him praise. And at the beginning of a new year, we should give thanks for the year of life we just had, and pray for the upcoming year that may we be filled with His presence and His purpose for our lives.

A New Year's Hymn
Poet: Hezekiah Butterworth


For us, Lord, the year has brought
Its bloom and harvest glory;
To us, through changing seasons, taught
Thy truth, in Gospel story.

Again our voices join in song,
And bring their glad thanksgiving
To Thee, to whom all years belong,
To Thee, the ever-living.

We meet with gladness on each lip,
And kindly warmth of greeting,
And in Thy boundless fellowship,
Each heart to heart is beating.

And for this day, and for this hour,
We bring our glad thanksgiving
To Thee, the ever gracious Lord,
To Thee, the ever-living.

We oft have sung with fresh delight
Of thy new love upspringing,
And some who joined our songs, to-night
Are with the angels singing.

But friends below and friends above
Unite in glad thanksgiving
To Thee, whom all thy children love,
To Thee, the ever-living.

Thy power in prayer we oft have felt,
Thy sympathy most tender,
And seemed to see, as we have knelt,
Thy face in veiled splendor.

For all these joys from Paradise,
We bring our glad thanksgiving
To Thee, who every good supplies,
To Thee, the ever-living.

So may we join from year to year,
Thy goodness ever singing,
And after faithful service, hear
The bells of glory ringing.

Then, safe with Thee, again we'll raise
Our voices in thanksgiving
To Thee, in more exalted praise,
To Thee, the ever-living.

Another Year
Poet: Frances Eidley Hayergal


Another year is dawning!
Dear Father, let it be
In working or in waiting
Another year with Thee!

Another year of leaning
Upon Thy loving breast,
Of ever-deepening trustfulness,
Of quiet, happy rest.

Another year of mercies,
Of faithfulness and grace;
Another year of gladness
In the shining of Thy face.

Another year of progress,
Another year of praise,
Another year of proving
Thy presence "all the days."

Another year of service.
Of witness for Thy love;
Another year of training
For holier work above.

Another year is dawning!
Dear Father, let it be,
On earth or else in heaven.
Another year for Thee!
