Happy New Year

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

--Frances Ridley Havergal

This is beautiful, Miss Sarah. I have never heard this song/poem before, but I will be copying it off to save as I really like it! (And it is written by one of my favorite authors. :)

May the Lord guide and direct your steps in this new year!

Thanks so much for commenting! Frances Ridley Havergal is one of my favorite authors too. I found this poem in a little book I use every year (which she used to use too) called Journal of Mercies. It's just a simple little journal to record one of the Lord's mercies every day of the year.

May the Lord bless you too in this coming year!

I love this song too. It is one of my favorites. It inspired me to write a song.
