AS WE CLOSE ANOTHER YEAR
(Tune: Take My Life and Let It Be #393 77.77)
As we close another year,
Father, hear Your children's praise,
For Your providential care,
Thank You for Your matchless grace!
Trials have come and sorrows too,
Satan's darts at us are thrown;
But You've seen us safely through.
Thank You, Lord, our Refuge strong!
All we've needed grace supplied.
Kept in our appointed ways,
By Your hand we're satisfied.
Thanks we give for daily grace.
Thanks to God for grace begun.
Thanks for life in Christ Your Son.
Thanks for glory yet to come.
Thank You, Lord, for all You've done!
If we live another day,
Or, perhaps, another year,
Guide us, Father, in Your way.
Thanks for hope our lives to cheer!
