Ring Out Wild Bells

Ring out wild bells to the wild sky, 
The flying cloud, the frosty light:
 The year is dying in the night.
Ring out, wild bells, and let him die.

    Ring out the old, ring in the new,
     Ring, happy bells, across the snow:
    The year is going, let him go;
     Ring out the false, ring in the true.

Ring out false pride in place and blood, 
The civic slander and the spite.
 Ring in the love of truth and right.
 Ring in the common love of good.

Ring out old shapes of foul disease;
      Ring out the narrowing lust of gold;
     Ring out the thousand wars of old,
     Ring in the thousand years of peace.

~Alfred Lord Tennyson

May your coming days be filled with blessings.
Happy New Year!

May the saint protect ye-
An' sorrow neglect ye,
An' bad luck to the one
That doesn't respect ye
t' all that belong to ye,
An long life t' yer honor-
That's the end of my song t' ye!
