New Year Hymn.

JESUS, bless`ed Saviour,
   Help us now to raise
Songs of glad thanksgiving,
   Songs of holy praise.
O how kind and gracious
   Thou hast always been!
O how many blessings
   Every day has seen!
      Jesus, bless`ed Saviour,
         Now our praises hear,
      For Thy grace and favour
         Crowning all the year.

Jesus holy Saviour,
   Only Thou canst tell
How we often stumbled,
   How we often fell!
All our sins (so many!),
   Saviour, Thou dost know;
In Thy blood most precious,
   Wash us white as snow.
      Jesus, bless`ed Saviour,
         Keep us in Thy fear,
      Let Thy grace and favour
         Pardon all the year.

Jesus, loving Saviour,
   Only Thou dost know
All that may befall us
   As we onward go.
So we humbly pray Thee,
   Take us by the hand,
Lead us ever upward
   To the Better Land.
      Jesus, bless`ed Saviour,
         Keep us ever near,
      Let Thy grace and favour
         Shield us all the year.

Jesus, precious Saviour,
   Make us all Thine own,
Make us Thine for ever,
   Make us Thine alone.
Let each day, each moment,
   Of this glad New-year,
Be for Jesus only,
   Jesus, Saviour dear.
      Then, O bless`ed Saviour,
         Never need we fear,
      For Thy grace and favour
         Crown our bright New-year!
