(in Fond Remembrance of Close Friends That went to Heaven´s Glory in 2015)


Tune:  Bless God from who all blessings flow...

We gladly welcome this New Year
that now is drawing very near,
despite a world wrapped up in gloom
there´s still for gospel tidings room!

And so we praise the Spirit´s might
that breathes upon God´s word of light,
our path is full of pastures green
as from His promises we glean!

And calling to our minds we do
dear friends that passed away but who
are now enjoying Heaven´s rest,
nay, in God´s presence they are blest!

The blessed hope does make us run
the race till we at last have won
the crown of righteousness by grace,
for soon we shall behold His face!   (Ps. 17:15)

So with endurance we press on
forgetting things behind and gone  (Phil. 3:13),
for this New Year the Lord provides
new gospel roads to which He guides!  (Isa. 43:19)
