 Sin has undone our wretched race;
But Jesus has restored,
And brought the sinner face to face
With his forgiving Lord.
This we repeat from year to year And press upon our youth; Lord, give them an attentive ear, Lord, save them by Thy truth! Blessings upon the rising race! Make this a happy hour, According to Thy richest grace, And thine Almighty power.
We feel for your unhappy state (May you regard it too), And would a while ourselves forget To pour our prayer for you.
We see, though you perceive it not, The approaching awful doom; Oh tremble at the solemn thought, And flee the wrath to come! Dear Saviour, let this new-born year Spread an alarm abroad; And cry in every careless ear, "Prepare to meet thy God!"
