Excerpt from The Gospel Messenger, Vol. 38: A Religious Weekly; January 6, 1900
Tm: year's last day is done. Slowly The sunset clouds turn gray and drear Hushed and silent the white earth lies. While all life whispers, Death is near.
But lo! A star shines through the gloom, Another points the upward way; And where the sun's last gleam grew pale, There shines the crescent moon's new ray.
Good-bye, Old Year! Thy night is dark, But the stars and the moon are there; Thy lessons were hard, but we learn Them best through sorrow and through care.
Thy night was dark; but morning comes, The dawn of a gladsome New Year. God gives us strength to keep it pure, And faith to read life's meaning clear. -selected.
