Jesu, nun sei gepreiset
Zu diesem neuen Jahr,
Für dein' Gut', uns beweiset
In aller Noth und G'fahr:
Dass wir haben erlebet
Die neu' fröhliche Zeit,
Die voller Gnaden schwebet
Und ew'ger Seligkeit.
Dass wir in guter Stille
Das alt' Jahr hab'n erfüllet.
Wir woll'n uns dir ergeben
Jetzt und immerdar:
Behüt' uns Leib und Leben
Hinfort das ganze Jahr!

JESUS! to Thee be praises
Upon this new year’s dawn,
For all Thy loving graces
That through the year were shown
In danger, need, and sadness;
Still dost Thou deign to bless
With this new day gladness
And heav’nly blessedness.
In peace the year is ending;
We leave to Thy good tending
Ourselves both now and ever,
And pray Thee, Savior dear,
To shield us with Thy favor
Throughout the coming year!
