Another Year For Thee by Frances Ridley Havergal (1836-1879)

Another Year Is Dawning
Another Year is dawning!
Dear Master let me be,
In working or in waiting,
Another year with thee.
Another year in leaning,
Upon Thy loving breast,
Of ever-deepening trustfulness
Of quiet, happy rest.

Another year of mercies,
Of faithfulness and grace;
Another year of gladness,
In the shinning on thy face,
Another of praise;
Another year of proving
Thy presence “all the days.”

Another year of service,
Of witness for thy love;
Another year of training
For holier works above.
Another year is dawning!
Dear Master, let it be
On earth, or else in heaven
Another year for thee!
