In our reading from the first letter of St John, he declares that “it is the last hour.” And, indeed, another year draws to a close.
And another dawns – which leads us to respond:
Let the heavens be glad and the earth rejoice!
Sing to the LORD a new song;
sing to the LORD, all you lands.
Sing to the LORD; bless his name;
announce his salvation, day after day.
May God give you many blessings and joys in the new year!
