Ode to the New Year

High upon the yonder mountain top

​Rises the sun with its gleaming hope

Ushering in the long-waited year

​Taking away last year’s fear.

With its bright crimson and flaming rays ​

Ushers in the year with promising days

Come hither thou yearning year

​For we been longing to hear

We wishfully offer thee our loving embrace

​Take away the ‘owesome’ last year trace

Come hither come tither O gracious year

​Let us sing in unison a Happy New Year!
