Verse 1
Another year has rolled by
The time flies so quickly by,
This year which is to pass by
May be the last year for some,
It's Thy mercy kept us through
Have we been benefited?
We should ask, are we prepared
If we are called home this year?

Verse 2
This world is a battle ground,
Thousands are falling down dead,
The arrows of death that fly
Can be sent to me, to you
When the word is preached, we hear
Help our hearts to meditate,
Eternity's close at hand
We are standing on the brink.

Verse 3
If we are saved from our sins
By the grace of God divine
We shall hear Him say, `Come home,`
May we see His face in heav'n;
For Thy people here on earth
Grant us mercy this new year;
The year that's more full of joy
Is the one that sees them home.
