With Joyful Songs And Happy Cheer

With joyful songs and happy cheer,
We gladly hail the bright New Year,
Our hearts are filled with grateful love
For all God’s blessings from above.

Thanks be to Him we love so dear,
For giving us this bright New Year,
To One and All in song we bear,
A New Year’s greeting every where.

All things renew their growth and worth
Touched by the hand that gave them birth
The hand, that freely doth provide
For living nations far and wide. [Refrain]

Let us renew our thoughts and deeds,
And plant afresh our little seeds,
Replenishing from God’s great store
The human heart forevermore. [Refrain]

Let every heart respond in praise,
And voices blend in grateful lays,
To God for His unchanging love
And for His blessings from above. [Refrain]
