An original hymn with text by Kathryn Hales below.
YouTube video:

'Twas the nightbefore New Year’s and all through the towns,

People werecheering, jumping up and down;

They stood inanticipation to watch a ball drop,

Or exclaimed inamazement as fireworks popped.


What happens next,as a new year begins?

Will people bemore loving? Repent of their sins?

A blank calendarnow opens__months, weeks and days__

Will we drawcloser to Jesus and follow His ways?


That’s the way tomake this a truly Happy New Year,

So may we allresolve to fill it with good cheer,

And all anger andfighting immediately cease,

That at last we’llhave a time of good will and peace.
