Another Year

Another year is dawning!

  Dear Master, 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 Master, let it be,

On earth, or else in heaven,

  Another year for Thee!
