Hymn for New Years Day – Charles Wesley

Collection of Hymns for the New Year

1 Come, let us anew
Our journey pursue,
Roll round with the year,
And never stand still, ’till the Master appear;
His adorable will
Let us gladly fulfil,
And our talents improve
By the patience of hope, and the labour of love.

2 Our life is a dream,
Our time as a stream
Glides swiftly away,
And the fugitive moment refuses to stay,
The arrow is flown,
The moment is gone,
The millennial year
Rushes on to our view, and eternity’s here!

3 O that each in the day
Of his coming might say
“I have fought my way through,
I have finished the work thou didst give me to do!”
O that each from his Lord
May receive the glad word
“Well and faithfully done,
Enter into my joy, and sit down on my throne!”
