159 - Another year is dawning
 
1 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.
 
2 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.
 
3 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.
