A HAPPY YEAR,
A HAPPY YEAR,

MAY THIS JUST
ENTERED BE!

A HAPPY, SUNNY,
PEACEFUL YEAR

BE GRANTED THINE,
AND THEE!

MAY JOYS BE BRIGHT,
AND GRIEFS BE LIGHT

AS ONWARD HASTE
THE HOURS;

THY PATHS BE PATHS
OF PLEASANTNESS,

AND STEWN WITH LIFE'S
BEST FLOWERS.

AND MAY EACH DAY
THAT SPEEDS AWAY,

STILL LEAVE THEE AS
IT GOES,

FITTER FOR JOYS
TO KNOW NO END,

AND YEARS
TO SEE NO CLOSE.
