This is the last song in the book. They chose to end it with a hymn for the New Year.

John Bell’s text indeed does suits New Years Day but verses 2, 3 & 4 would make a fine recessional. You can find the words and melody line at Hymnary.

He set it to the traditional tune O WALY WALY, which I have blogged elsewhere, but I have done a new backing because his arrangement has rather dark harmonic effects that don’t sound familiar.
