from Prayers for the Civil Year

New Year's Day

Eternal God, who makest all things new, and abidest for ever the same:
Grant us to begin this year in Thy faith, and to continue it in Thy favor;
that, being guided in all our doings, and guarded in all our days,
we may spend our lives in Thy service, and finally, by Thy grace,
atttain the glory of everlasting life; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

( The Book of Common Worship, 1946, published for the General Assembly)
