1 Now a new year opens,
Now we newly turn
To the holy Saviour,
Lessons fresh to learn.

2 This the holy lesson
On the year's first day;
Jesus by obedience
Teaches to obey.

3 Of Thy cross thus early,
Tokens Thou dost give;
By Thy wounds Thou healest;
By Thy death we live.

4 Not to suffer only,
Jesus, didst Thou come,
But to leave us way-marks
Pointing to our home.

5 In Thy blessed footsteps
Ever may we tread;
Safe when keeping near thee,
By Thy Spirit led.
