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

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 of 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.
–Francis Ridley Havergal (1874)

  1. Loved Francis Ridley’s verse. But as I think of all the qualities mentioned that we need to aspire and pray for, what I see all of them morphing into is the need to “continue to be our own amazing selves.” Would you agree?

    Have a great 2014.
