New Year

Dear Master, for this coming year

Just one request I bring:

I do not pray for happiness,

Or any earthly thing-

I do not as to understand

The way Thou leadest me,

But this I ask: Teach me to do

The thing that pleaseth Thee.

I want to know Thy guiding voice,

To walk with Thee each day.

Dear Master, make me swift to hear

And ready to obey.

And thus the year I now begin

A happy year will be-

If I am seeking just to do

The thing that pleaseth Thee.
