271. Another Year Is Dawning

1 Another year is dawning!
Dear Father, let it be,
In working or in waiting,
Another year with Thee;
Another year of progress,
Another year of praise,
Another year of proving
Thy presence all the days.

2 Another year of mercies,
Of faithfulness and grace;
Another year of gladness,
In the shining of Thy face;
Another year of leaning
Upon Thy loving breast,
Another year of trusting,
Of quiet, happy rest.

3 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.
