Alfred, Lord Tennyson
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.
T. S. Eliot
For last year's words belong to last year's language
And next year's words await another voice.
And to make an end is to make a beginning.
Glory to God in highest heaven,
Who unto man His Son hath given;
While angels sing with tender mirth,
A glad new year to all the earth.
