New Year’s Day

INFANT songs are sweet today,

But, children, you must also pray,

Asking God to guard you here,

Making this a safe new year.

You must ask for grace within,

To follow Christ, forsaking SIN,

Living as his children dear,

Making this a holy year.

Little children, bright and gay,

I would not make you sad today;

Yet I must repeat it here,

This may be your last new year.

But if Jesus be your friend,

You have a life that will not end,

And a home that's shining clear,

Fairer than the fairest here.
