The New Year – Hymn Lyric
Joy! joy! a year is born;
A year to man is given,
For hope, and peace, and love,
For faith, and truth, and heaven.
Though earth be dark with care,
With death and sorrow rife,
Yet toil, and pain, and prayer,
Lead to our higher life.
Behold, the fields are white!
No longer idly stand!
Go forth in love and might;
Man needs thy helping hand.
Thus may each day and year
To prayer and toil be given,
Till man to God draw near,
And earth become like heaven.
Meaning of The New Year
Joy! joy! A year is born, and with it comes a fresh start, filled with hope, peace, and love. As we leave behind the past year, with all its cares and burdens, we embark on a journey towards a brighter future. This hymn reminds us that despite the darkness that may surround us the cares of the world, the presence of death and sorrow there is a path that leads us to our higher life.
The beginning of a new year brings with it a sense of renewed enthusiasm and determination. It is a time for reflection, for setting goals and making resolutions, for turning over a new leaf. And yet, as this hymn suggests, it is not simply a time for idle contemplation, but a call to action.
“Behold, the fields are white! No longer idly stand! Go forth in love and might; Man needs thy helping hand.” These words urge us to move beyond mere words and intentions, and to actively engage with the world around us. The fields are white and ready for harvest, symbolizing the opportunities and challenges that lie ahead. It is not enough to stand back and watch; we must go forth with love and strength, ready to lend a helping hand wherever it is needed.
In this new year, may each day and year be dedicated to prayer and toil. Prayer reminds us of our connection to something greater than ourselves and brings us closer to God. It is through prayer that we find solace, guidance, and the strength to carry on. But prayer alone is not enough; it must be followed by action. We must put our faith into practice through our daily toil through our work, our relationships, and our service to others.
As we commit ourselves to prayer and toil, we draw closer to God and strive to make the world around us a better place. This is the essence of the hymn’s message: “Till man to God draw near, And earth become like heaven.” Our ultimate goal is not just personal salvation, but the transformation of the world around us. We work towards a vision of earth becoming like heaven a place of peace, justice, and love.
Each new year, we have the opportunity to make a difference. It may seem daunting at times, given the challenges we face as individuals and as a society. However, this hymn reminds us that change is possible, and that it begins with small acts of love and compassion. It is through these acts that we bring heaven closer to earth.
In conclusion, The New Year is a time of joy and celebration, as we leave behind the old and embrace the opportunity for new beginnings. This hymn serves as a reminder that although the world may be filled with darkness and sorrow, we have the power to create change through prayer, toil, and love. Let us enter this new year with hope and determination, ready to go forth and make a difference in the world. May each day and year be dedicated to the pursuit of truth, the practice of faith, and the realization of peace.
