1.  The new Church Year again is come

And wakes the joy of Christendom;

Thy King, O Zion, comes to thee,

Rejoice, rejoice eternally!

Hallelujah!

2.  Now in our midst anew are heard

The lessons of God’s holy Word,

That lead the way to life and heav’n;

Lord, praise to Thee for this be giv’n!

Hallelujah!

3.  Thy truth repeated o’er and o’er,

Our faith will strengthen more and more;

Let it abide in us, that we

May render endless praise to Thee.

Hallelujah!
