To Jesus, to Jesus,
Give the coming year;
O ask Him to help you,
Ask Him to be near.

Refrain

Give this year to Jesus,
Live and work for Him;
Labor for the Master,
Give this year to Him.

Be watchful, be prayerful;
Strive against the wrong,
And Jesus will aid you
All the way along.

Refrain

Be faithful, be earnest,
Live for God alone,
And peace shall reward you
When the year has flown.
