Salvation Seasons



Tune: St George's, Windsor

('Come ye thankful people, come')

*********

Seasons come and seasons go

Winter, Spring, Summer we know

Autumn too, cycle of years

Here all human life appears

Fauna and flora abounds

Now the crops fill harvest-grounds

Time to gather in it be

It supplied by God's hand, see

 

He does see our daily need

Of food, drink, clothes, does us feed

Physically, spiritually

Body, soul, and spirit, three

On Him for all we depend

He does to us help and tend

We His creations, He be

Creator eternally

 

Lead us Lord to share freely

Where poverty, famine be

Sharing with our fellow man

So doing good as we can

With your grace, your compassion

Showing life of Christ your Son

In unselfish service free

Examples of His love be

 

You Lord e'er of time and space

Knowing each nation, each race

Help us put your kingdom first

Not for earthly things crave, thirst

Yours the greatness, power be

The victory, the majesty

Thanks to you, who ever live

Every good thing you us give

    It's that same church again, Gold. You know it!

  • Goldfinch60

    Yes been in that Church, helped take services in there when I was Chaplain to the Sea Cadets. Knew one guy in the choir and one of the ladies in the congregation that I saw is in the Community Choir of which I am Chair. The mayor, I know very well, used to quiz with him in the quiz league, he is in a wheelchair now but an amazing personality.
