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;
Stay not in our work nor slumber

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.

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;
Teach us henceforth how to live

With eternity in view:
Bless Thy word to young and old;

Fill us with a Saviour's love;
And when life's short tale is told,

May we dwell with Thee above.

2 “I the Lord, am with thee,

Be thou not afraid!
I will keep and strengthen,

Be thou not dismayed!
Yea, I will uphold thee

With my own right hand;
Thou art called and chosen

In My sight to stand.”–Ref. 3 For the year before us,

Oh, what rich suppl'es!
For the poor and needy

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;
His eternal covenant

He will never break!
Resting on His promise,

What have we to fear ?
God is all-sufficient
For the coming year.- Ref.

2 The fullness of His blessing

Encompasseth our way; The fullness of His promises

Crowns every brightning day;
The fullness of His glory,

Is beaming from above,
While more and more we learn to know

The fullness of His love. 3 And closer yet and closer

The golden bonds shall be,
Uniting all who love our Lord

In pure sincerity;
And wider yet and wider

Shall the circling glory glow,
As more and more are taught of God

That mighty love to know.

4 Oh, let our adoration

For all that He hath done,
Peal out beyond the stars of God,

While voice and life are one;
And let our consecration

Be real, and deep, and true:
Oh, even now our hearts shall bow,

And joyful vows renew.
5 Now onward, ever onward,

From strength to strength we go,
While grace for grace abundantly

Shall from His fullness flow,
To glory's full fruition,

From glory's foretaste here,
Until His very presence crown
Our happiest New Year.
