Happy New Year | Manhattan, 1988

 

Auld Lang Syne was written by Robert Burns in 1788, 100 years before the above picture was taken in Manhattan on New Year’s Eve, 1988. Happy New Year! May God hold you in the palm of His hand.

Should Auld Acquaintance be forgot
and never brought to mind
Should Auld Acquaintance be forgot
and days of Auld Lang Syne

For Auld Lang Syne my dear
For Auld Lang Syne
We’ll take a cup of kindness yet
for days of Auld Lang Syne

We two have run about the braes
and pu’d the gowned fine
but we’ve wandered a many weary fit
since days of Auld Lang Syne

We two have piddl’d in the burn
frae morning’ sun ’til dine
but seas between us brae her roared
since days of Auld Lang Syne

For Auld Lang Syne my dear
For Auld Lang Syne
We’ll take a cup of kindness yet
for days of Auld Lang Syne

And surely you’ll be yer pint Stowp
And surely I’ll be mine
And We’ll take a cup of kindness yet
for days of Auld Lang Syne

And there’s a hand my trusty fiere
and gives a hand o’ thine
And we’ll take right gude willie waught
for Auld Lang Syne

For Auld Lang Syne my dear
For Auld Lang Syne
We’ll take a cup of kindness yet
for days of Auld Lang Syne
