[Written for the Sentinel.]


Begin the year with God,O thou who standest on its threshold fair!And then, whate'er may come, thou needst not care;No burden will be thine thou canst not bear,Nor any task assigned thou may'st not dare;So, ere a single step thou yet hast trod,Begin the year with God!

With God begin the day!It is the day He made; in gladness speedTo meet its every task, nor shalt thou heedFear's subtle whisper that would bid thee pleadUnfitness for thy place. His hand shall lead;So, that thou may'st His guidance know for aye,With God begin the day!

We'd love to hear from you!
