NEW YEAR’S WISHES

Activated - - NEWS - —Frances Ri­d­ley Haver­gal (1836–1879), adapted ■

What shall I wish you? Trea­sures of earth? Songs in the spring­time? Plea­sures and mirth? Flow­ers on your path­way, Skies ever clear? Would this en­sure you A happy new year?

What shall I wish you? What can be found Bring­ing you sun­shine All the year round? Where is the trea­sure, Last­ing and dear, That shall en­sure you A happy new year?

Faith that in­creases, Walk­ing in light; Hope that’s abound­ing, Happy and bright; Love that is per­fect, Cast­ing out fear; These shall en­sure you A happy new year.

Peace in the Sav­ior, Rest at His feet, Smile on His coun­te­nance, Ra­di­ant and sweet. Joy in His pres­ence! Christ ever near! This will en­sure you A happy new year!
