The Turning of the Year



A Hobbit Carol
- Daisy Gold
Come celebrate, be of good cheer,
And raise a toast to the New Year.

Winter winds blow cold and squally,
Inside homes are warm and jolly,
Hung with pine and boughs of holly.
Come celebrate, be of good cheer.

Welcome in your guests and kin,
Let your homes with laughter ring,
Kindled by the joy within.
And raise a toast to the New Year.

Kitchen fires are burning bright,
Much good food and beer delight,
Merry voices fill the night.
Come celebrate, be of good cheer.

Beat the drums, let trumpets play,
Sing and dance the hours away,
Then to greet the new-born day.
And raise a toast to the New Year.

At the turning of the year,
Lay to rest your pain, your fear,
Remember friends once held so dear.
When the midnight hour draws near.

Now the old year’s fading fast,
So let it go, let it past,
All hold hands, each lad and lass,
And raise a toast to the New Year.
