1. Another year is dawning-

A path unknown, untried,

‘Twould fill me with foreboding,

Had I no hand to guide;

But He who walked beside me

All through the yesteryear;

Whatever may betide me,

Has promised to be near;

2. Another year with Jesus!

Ah, then, no dread I know.

His love is ever precious,

Howe’er the winds may blow.

E’en when the storm is fiercest,

In Him my soul may rest,

And find sweet peace and comfort

Upon his loving breast.

3. Another year to trust Him-

Yes, I can trust Him still,

Who never yet has failed me

As I have sought His will.

His rod and staff He giveth

To be my strength and stay,

And tenderly He leadeth

Along the homeward way.

4. Another year to serve Him,

To labour for Him here,

E’en while the shadows lengthen

And night is drawing near.

I know not when He’ll call me

To lay my sickle by-

Oh, may I then be faithful,

While now the moments fly!

5. Another year to love Him,

Whom I have loved so long;

Another year to praise Him

In glad triumphant song.

Whate’er the future holdeth,

Of sorrow, toil, or pain;

His precious Love endureth

Forevermore the same.

6. Another year with Jesus!

I thank thee, Lord, today

For Thy unfailing presence

Along life’s rugged way.

Guide me, O blest redeemer,

Teach me to do Thy will,

And Thy own perfect purpose

In me each day fulfil.

1. Admit that you are a sinner. "For all [humans] have sinned, and comes short of the glory of God....[and] the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord" (Romans 3:23)
2. Repent now. "Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out ...[for] if we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness " (Acts 3:19, 1 John 1:9)
3. Believe that God loves you and Jesus died for you. "God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet Sinners, Christ died for us" (Romans 5:8)
4. Invite Jesus into your life through prayer of faith. Jesus says, "Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me" (Revelation 3:20)
