Another Year Is Dawning

by Pastor Clinton Macomber


In January 1874, Frances Havergal, then 36, wrote this great poem and sent it to all her friends with the heading, “Happy New Year! Ever Such May It Be!” The text continues to be the finest New Year Hymns of recent writing.

Another year is dawning,
Dear Master, let it be.
In working or in waiting,
Another year with Thee.

Another year of mercies,
Of faithfulness and grace.
Another year of gladness
In the shining of Thy face.

Another year of progress,
Another year 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 work above.

Another year is dawning,
Dear Master let it be,
On earth, or else in heaven
Another year for Thee.
