Verse 1
Almighty, Thou God of our peace
Decreed that the year roll by;
Thy children have come to thank Thee
For the new year just begun.
Praise ye the Lord, praise ye the Lord
The great king who spared our lives.

Verse 2
We thank Thee for our protection
In the year that has just passed,
We implore Thee for Thy help, Lord
For all of us this new year.
Let Thy flock here, let Thy flock here,
Keep growing in Jesus Christ.

Verse 3
May the adults prepare themselves
To serve with one heart this year,
May the young ones too be ready
To seek God with all their hearts.
May the Lord's peace, may the Lord's peace
Be the crown of this new year.

Verse 4
May the Holy Ghost from on high
Come upon us, this new year;
May the pastor and the teacher
And all the congregation
Prepare themselves, prepare themselves,
To do service for the Lord.
