Another Year Is Dawning By Frances Ridley Havergal

“Teach us to number our days aright, that we may gain a heart of wisdom” (Psalm 90:12).

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. 


Amen.
