A New Year prayer

Jan 2004    

ANOTHER year hath passed away,
And what can I account to Him
For gracious mercy He hath shown
That kept me safe in life and limb.

When I survey what I have done
That could deserve His mercy great,
My heart doth weep within itself
To think how small they all do rate.

O God forbid that I should boast
Of aught I gave in charity,
Or else to boast for having done
What duty but demands of me.

Such mercy as Thou showest all
Surpass what we could e’er deserve:
Whate’er we do, we owe Thee still –
We, whom Thou daily dost preserve.

O lead me, Lord, to higher heights
Of self-denying sacrifice:
To bring my brethren in distress,
And deem that deed my only prize.
