And now our souls another year Of Thy




And now, my soul, another year
Of thy short life is past;
I cannot long continue here,
And this may be my last.


Part of my doubtful life is gone,
Nor will return again;
And swift my fleeting moments run
The dew which yet remain!


Awake, my soul! with utmost care
Thy true condition learn;
What are thy hopes, how sure? how fair?
What is thy great concern?


Behold, another year begins!
Set out afresh for Heaven;
Seek pardon for thy former sins,
In Christ so freely given.


Devoutly yield thyself to God,
And on His grace depend;
With zeal pursue the heavenly road,
Nor doubt a happy end.


---Alternative verses---


Awake, my soul! with all thy care
Thy true condition learn;
What are thy hopes, how sure? how fair?
What is thy great concern?


Now a new space of life begins,
Set out afresh for heaven:
Seek pardon for thy former sins,
Through Christ, so freely given.


Now a new scene of time begins,
Set out afresh for heaven;
Seek pardon for thy former sins,
In Christ so freely given.
