From the January 1888 issue of The Christian Science Journal

Where are the works in patience wrought, The grace to love thy neighbor, The sins left off, the wisdom taught Of suffering and labor, The fuller life, the strength to wait, The equal heart for either fate? Well may I speed the parting guest, And take the New Year to my breast. Be thou indeed a true year, Oh fair and welcome New Year.
