New Year’s Wishes.

WHAT shall I wish thee ?
Treasures of earth ?
Songs in the spring-time,
Pleasure and mirth ?
Flowers on thy pathway,
Skies ever clear ?
Would this ensure thee
A Happy New Year ?

What shall I wish thee ?
What can be found
Bringing thee sushine
All the year round ?
Where is the treasure,
Lasting and dear,
That shall ensure thee
A Happy New Year ?

Faith that increaseth,
Walking in light ;
Hope that aboundeth,
Happy and bright ;
Love that is perfect,
Casting out fear ;–
These shall ensure thee
A  Happy New Year.

Peace in the Saviour,
Rest at His feet,
Smile of His countenance
Radiant and sweet,
Joy in His presence,
Christ ever near !–
This will ensure thee
A Happy New Year !

Frances Ridley Havergal from THE POETICAL WORKS
