In Trust

by Mary Mapes Dodge

It's coming, boys,
It's almost here
It's coming, girls,
The grand New Year!
A year to be glad
Not to be bad in;
A year to live in,
To gain and give in,
A year for trying,
And not for sighing;
A year for striving,
And hearty thriving;
A bright new year
Oh! hold it dear;
For God who send
He only lendeth.
