Happy New Year 2013

What shall I wish you?
   Treasures of earth?
Songs in the springtime,
   Pleasure and mirth?
Flowers on your pathway,
   Skies ever clear?
Would this assure you
   A HAPPY NEW YEAR?

What shall I wish you?
   What can be found
Bringing you sunshine
   All the year 'round?
Where is the treasure,
   Lasting and dear,
That shall assure you
   A HAPPY NEW YEAR?

Faith that increaseth,
   Walking in light;
Hope that aboundeth,
   Happy and bright;
Love that is perfect,
   Casting out fear;
These shall assure you
   A HAPPY NEW YEAR.

Peace in the Saviour,
   Rest at His feet,
Smile of His countenance
   Radiant and sweet,
Joy in His presence!
   Christ ever near!
This will assure you
   A HAPPY NEW YEAR!

—F.R. Havergal
