O Almighty God, who alone art without variableness or shadow of turning, and hast safely brought us through the changes of time to the beginning of another year: We beseech thee to pardon the sins we have committed in the year that is past, and give us grace that we may spend the remainder of our days to thy honour and glory; through Jesus Christ our Lord.
"Hail to thee Glorious rising year, With what uncommon Grace thy days appear!" The opening of 'Ode for the New Year' (1716), a poem by Nicholas Rowe, Poet Laureate from 1715-18 [K24.3/EU7 06]. Best wishes & a very #HappyNewYear from @lampallib! pic.twitter.com/Sy6BSBdJCP
