The Hymn of the New Year's Bells.

T midnight by the wintry fire,
We sit and backward gaze
Into the past-the bygone years,
The vanished months and days.

And memory turns her mystic page,
Seen by the soul within,

With many a blotted record there
Of sorrow and of sin.

For much is gone we might have gained,
And many a blank is seen;

The best we missed, and ofttimes lost

The good that might have been.

We might have trod a higher path,
And lived a better life;

We might have held a stronger faith,
And waged a nobler strife.

From many a band that held us back
We might have been set free,
And so this night, O Lord our God,
Have nearer been to Thee.
