mf2 A few more suns shall set
A few more struggles here,
A few more partings o'er, cr And we shall be where suns are not,
A few more toils, a few more tears, A far serener clime:

Then, O my Lord, prepare
My soul for that bright day; dim 0 wash me in Thy precious blood, dim 0 wash me in Thy precious blood, p And take my sins away.

mf 2 Ring out the old, ring in the new,
Ring in the love of truth and right, Ring, happy bells, across the snow: Ring in the common love of good. The year is going, let him go;
5 Ring out the shapes of foul disease, Ring out the false, ring in the true.
Ring ont the narrowing lust of gold; 3 Ring out the grief that saps the mind, Ring out the thousand wars of old,
For those that here we see no more; Ring in the thousand years of peace. Ring out the feud of rich and poor, cr 6 Ring in the valiant man and free, Ring in redress to all mankind.
The larger heart, the kindlier hand; 4 Ring out false pride in place and blood, Ring out the darkness of the land, The civic slander and the spite;
Ring in the Christ that is to be.
