723 Winter and Spring LM
THE various changing seasons owe
Their revolutions to the Lord;
The hoary fog and fleecy snow
And winds and clouds obey his word.
2 He sends the cold, and o’er the streams,
His arms an icy mantle fling,
Again his sun’s enlivening beams
Restore the blessings of the Spring.
3 The moon and stars at his command,
Swiftly perform their destined race.
None can his mighty power withstand,
Or his mysterious footsteps trace.
