New Year wishes (c1877)

New year wishes c 1877 card

Greeting card published by Marcus Ward & Co. The verse reads:

The New Year is waiting in the porch,
For the Old Year to hand to her the torch,
That she may light thee on they way,
May she lead thee tenderly, I pray;
May she lead thee aright;
And thy path be bright
With her guiding, consoling, cheering light.
