Lyrics

Verse 1
Another year has passed away,
And we again have met,
To hail the quick returning day
That finds us living yet.

Chorus
In a song of cheer we will welcome here
The lovely and the bright;–
Hear the joyful sound as it swells around,
This anniversary night!

Verse 2
O thank the Lord for all his care,
Through days so quickly flown,
Who scatters blessings everywhere,
And leaves no part unknown!

Verse 3
’Tis He who leads us day by day–
Who life eternal gives;
And they who walk the heavenly way,
Shall live with Him who loves.
