With this New YearÕs DayÕs beginning Don Fortner

(Tune: #291 — Guide Me, O Thou Great Jehovah — 87.87.87)

1.    With this New YearÕs DayÕs beginning,

Rise, my soul, to new delights;

From the world of sin, this morning,

Look above to Christ on high!

Nothing temporal, nothing carnal,

Can compare with heavenÕs delights!

2.    WinterÕs here and all is frozen,

Like my wretched, sinful heart!

But my Savior, to His chosen,

Will celestial fire impart.

Oh, to feel it! Oh, to feel it!

Burning as my years depart!

3.    As the year which now commences

Brings its happiness, its woes,

Christ sufficient grace dispenses,

And His promised aid bestows.

Ever with me, ever present,

HeÕll protect me from all foes!

4.    Oh, for grace, each day increasing,

To pursue my high career,

Trusting, praising, without ceasing,

Through each swift revolving year,

Till in glory, till in glory,

With my Savior I appear!
