Some of the churches have no
bells so they have borrowed from
the institutions which have bells,
and' have taken 'over the job of
ringing them in their turn“
On New Years Day at 6 o’clock
in the evening, all the bells in town
will be rung at the 6 o’clock prayer
time. '
God bless our boys in air, on land
and sea!
Full well we know how dear they
are to Thee. ’ -
Where’er they go, whatever they

Grant us our prayers and bring
them safely home.
God fiess our foes and cause their
. eyes to see,
That peace alone can only come
from Thee. v ~
