While the ceaseless course the sun

Hasted through the for-mer year,

Spared to see a-no-ther year,

Come, thy precious work re-vive;

Ma-ny souls their race have run,

Never more to meet us here;

Let thy blessing meet us here,

Bid thy drooping garden thrive:

Fixed in an e-ter-nal state,

They have done with all be-low;

Sun of Righteous-ness, a-rise!

Let our prayer thy pi-ty move;

We a lit-tle long-er wait,

But how little none can know.

Warm our hearts and bless our eyes,

Make this year a time of love.
