song of fall

As Summer’s golden Sun descends,
Yet all warm rays not yet withdrawn,
In quiet beauty Fall creeps in,
As sweetly as a harvest song
The woods, before they enter sleep,
Display for us their gayest dress,
Shading o’er the fields we reap,
As they prepare for winter’s rest.
~
The season’s shift, as waves inrolling,
Summer and winters, with joys and woes,
We see the Father’s wise controlling,
As year by year His kindness shows
He gives to us these gentler seasons,
Spring and Fall, depict His ways,
In bringing us, for Holy reasons,
Through Joys and chast’nings of His grace.
~
So farewell Summer’s shining green,
As colors golden cloak the land,
Ever fair, as scene by scene,
The season’s show their Maker’s hand
But oh, displays as grand as this,
Every creatures that begs my love
Will never measure to the bliss,
Of eyes that rest on Christ above.

  • Quote of the Day

    “We love the old saints, missionaries, martyrs, and reformers. Our Luthers, Bunyans, Wesleys and Asburys, etc... We will write their biographies, reverence their memories, frame their epitaphs, and build their monuments. We will do anything except imitate them. We cherish the last drop of their blood, but watch carefully over the first drop of our own.”
    - A. W. Tozer
