THE NEW YEAR STANDS AT AN OPEN
-— bi Mm «. ww tt :... .............
The New Year stands at an open gate,
And the eyes of my soul are blind ;
Oh ! just fur a moment let me wait,
For the old road lies behind !
Let me remember, while I can trace
The steps on the wandering track ;
Let me say *• Farewell 1” for a moment’s
I shall never, never go back.
Let me look forward and humbly pray,
Ere the gate shall be closed behind ’K
How can I tell on the unknown way
What sorrow or joy I shall find ?
There’s the New Year’s chime ! Be glad
and bold ;
There is light on the other side.
Go through, remember Thé Promise
Go through, for the portal is wide.
