"Another Year Is Dawning"

I (James) stumbled across this hymn online. The lyrics are well-written by Francis Ridley Havergal and it's the same tune by Samuel Sebastian Wesley as has been frequently used for "The Church's One Foundation." It would work well for a New Year's Eve service or a church service in January. Lyrics below:


Another year is dawning, dear Father, let it be In working or in waiting, another year with Thee. Another year of progress, another year of praise, Another year of proving Thy presence all the days.

Another year of mercies, of faithfulness and grace, Another year of gladness in the shining of Thy face; Another year of leaning upon Thy loving breast; Another year of trusting, of quiet, happy rest.

Another year of service, of witness for Thy love, Another year of training for holier work above. Another year is dawning, dear Father, let it be On earth, or else in Heaven, another year for Thee.
