Another Year is Dawning

Another year is dawning:
Dear Father, let it be,
In working or in waiting,
Another year with Thee;
Another year of progress,
Another year of praise,
Another year of proving
Thy presence all the days;

Another year of mercies,
Of faithfulness and grace;
Another year of gladness
In the shining of Thy face;
Another year of leaning
Upon Thy loving breast;
Another year of trusting,
Of quiet, happy rest;

Another year of service,
Of witness for Thy love;
Another year of training
For holier work above.
Another year is dawning:
Dear Father, let it be,
On earth or else in heaven,
Another year for Thee.

Happy New Year to you all!

I think another "Female Blogger--Missing" post is in order, huh?

Hi Jessie!
Okay we know amply well that it is a new year. Why don't you post something new! Maybe like...I dunno...something about your visit with a particular "Old-Fashioned Girl". Or anything else would be fine, for that matter.

Hope you are still "alive and kickin'." :)
