GOD BE WITH YOU IN THE SPRING TIME
when the violets unfold,
and the buttercups and cowslips
fill the fields with yellow gold;
in the time of apple blossoms,
when the happy bluebird sing,
filling all the world with gladness-
God be with you in the
all the birds
GOD BE WITH YOU IN THE SUMMER
when sweet June roses blow.
when the bobolinks are laughing
and the brooks with music flow;
when the fields are white with daisies
and the days are glad and long-
God be with you in the Summer,
filling all your world with song.
GOD BE WITH YOU IN THE AUTUMN
when the birds and flowers have fled,
and along the woodland pathways
leaves are falling, gold and red;
when the Summer lies behind you,
in the evening of the year-
God be with you in the Autumn,
then to fill your heart with cheer.
GOD BE WITH YOU IN THE WINTER
when the snow lies deep and white,
when the sleeping fields are so silent
and the stars gleam cold and bright.
when the hand and heart are tired
with life's long and weary quest
God be with you in the Winter,
just to guide you into rest.
