Another Year is Dawning – Frances Ridley Havergal

Frances Ridley Havergal

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 of dawning, Dear Father, let it be,

On earth, or else in heaven, another year for Thee.

Frances Ridley Havergal
