Summer and winter and springtime and harvest,
sun, moon and stars in their courses above
join with all nature in manifold witness
to thy great faithfulness, mercy and love.
~Thomas Chisholm “Great is Thy Faithfulness”
Same scene of our barn weathervane,
through the years
through the seasons
through the changes
of children growing up
of children flying away
of our heads getting grayer
our steps now slower.
Morning by morning
this manifold witness
to such steadfast love
to infinite mercies
to unending faithfulness.
