No evil attack is so great that the Lord cannot deliver us from it. May He continue to keep us in the new year.

1. To God the anthem raising, 
Sing, Christians, great and small; 
Sing out, His goodness praising, 
Oh, thank Him one and all! 
Behold how God this year, 
Which now is safely ended, 
Hath in His love befriended 
His children far and near. 

2. Let us consider rightly 
His mercies manifold 
And let us not think lightly 
Of all His gifts untold. 
Let thankfulness recall 
How God this year hath led us, 
How He hath clothed and fed us, 
The great ones and the small. 

3. To Church and State He granted 
His peace in every place, 
His vineyard He hath planted 
Among us by His grace. 
His ever bounteous hand 
Prosperity hath given 
And want and famine driven 
From this our native land. 

4. His Father heart is yearning 
To take us for His own 
When, our transgressions mourning, 
We trust in Christ alone; 
When in His name we pray 
And humbly make confession, 
He pardons our transgression 
And is our faithful Stay. 

5. Our God hath well defended, 
Hath kept us through His grace; 
But if He had contended 
With us our sins to trace 
And given us our meed, 
We all would then be lying 
In sin and sorrow dying, 
Each one for his misdeed. 

6. O Father dear in heaven, 
For all Thy gifts of love 
Which Thou to us hast given 
We lift our thanks above. 
In Jesus’ name we here, 
To Thee our prayers addressing, 
Still ask Thee for Thy blessing: 
Grant us a joyful year.
