Looking at the New Year coming, just around the corner and I got to thinking about a hymn I could put up. This song popped into my head as I was watching McGyver and Maddy was learning her hubby from days past has a new family. The years passed as he had a new family. Anyways, I don’t know why it spawned the song “Another Year is Dawning” in my head but it did. Ergo… I’m sharing it with you.
- 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.
Frances Ridley Havergal is the author of this start of the year hymn. I’ve written about her in these other hymn posts as well.
