Yes....it's originally a song written for the "new year".

It is sung on the eve of the Julian New Year....which is Jan 13/14. 

...but, we sing it well before that date too! 

It's a lovely tune!

Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.
—St. Isaac of Syria
