2 Jesus, merciful Redeemer,
Rouse dead souls to hear Thy voice; Wake, oh, wake each idle dreamer
Now to make th' eternal choice! 3 Mark we whither we are wending;
Ponder how we soon must go To inherit bliss unending
Or eternity of woe. 4 As a shadow life is floating ;
As a vapor so it flies;
For the bygone years retreating,
Pardon grant, and make us wise; 5 Wise that we our days may number,
Strive and wrestle with our sin;
Till Thy holy rest we win. 6 Soon before the Judge all-glorious
We with all the dead shall stand; Saviour, over death victorious,
Place us then on Thy right hand.
E. Caswall, 1858

Hast - ed through the for - mer year,
to meet us
They have done with all
be - low;
lit - tle lon -ger wait,
But how lit - tle, none can know.
2 As the winged arrow flies
Speedily the mark to find; As the lightning from the skies
Darts, and leaves no trace behind; Swiftly thus our fleeting days
Bear us down life's rapid stream; Upward, Lord, our spirits raise :
Al below is but a dream.
3 Thanks for mercies past receive;
Pardon of our sins renew;
With eternity in view:
Fill us with a Saviour's love;
May we dwell with Thee above.
Chil-dren of the day! For His word shall nev- er, Nev-er pass à
2 “I the Lord, am with thee,
Be thou not afraid!
Be thou not dismayed!
With my own right hand;
In My sight to stand.”–Ref. 3 For the year before us,
Oh, what rich suppl'es!
Living streams shall rise;
For the sad and sinful
Shall His grace abound; For the faint and feeble
Perfect strength be found.-Ref. 4 He will never fail us,
He will not forsake;
He will never break!
What have we to fear ?

As dawns the sol-emn brightness of
oth - er glad New Year.
2 The fullness of His blessing
Encompasseth our way; The fullness of His promises
Crowns every brightning day;
Is beaming from above,
The fullness of His love. 3 And closer yet and closer
The golden bonds shall be,
In pure sincerity;
Shall the circling glory glow,
That mighty love to know.
4 Oh, let our adoration
For all that He hath done,
While voice and life are one;
Be real, and deep, and true:
And joyful vows renew.
From strength to strength we go,
Shall from His fullness flow,
From glory's foretaste here,
