New Year. Ps. 65. 8
J. Newton C.M.
Now, gracious Lord, thy arm reveal,
And make thy glory known;
Hear whilst we plead the Saviour’s name,
And venture near the throne.
From all the guilt of former sin
Let mercy set us free;
And let the year we now begin,
Begin and end with thee.
Send down thy Spirit from above,
That saints may love thee more,
And sinners now may learn to love,
Who never loved before.
And when before thee we appear,
In our eternal home,
May growing numbers worship here,
And praise thee in our room.
