Another Year Completed

Another year completed,

The day comes round once more

Which with our patron's radiance

Is bright as heretofore.

Now, strong in hope, united

His festival we greet;

He will present our troubles

Before the mercy-seat.

The Scriptures tell how Moses

Did for the people pray,

Appeased the Judge eternal,

And turned His wrath away;

Elijah's prayer had power,

To close and open Heav'n;

Such saints as were aforetime,

Such saints to us are giv'n.

O saint of God, belovèd,

And placed on His right hand,

Thy prayers be like a rampart

As 'gainst the foe we stand;

For Abraham's God is thy God,

And Isaac's God is thine,

Thine is the God of Jacob,

The Lord of power benign.

For forty years His Israel

He fed with angels' food;

The flinty rock He opened

The streams of water flowed.

Entreat that Christ His people

May lead to victory:

The God of Joshua's triumph

The Lord thy God is He.
