Hymn/Song Information

See the leaves around us falling Dry and withered




See the leaves around us falling,
Dry and withered, to the ground;
Thus to thoughtless mortals calling
In a sad and solemn sound:—


“Sons of Adam, (once in Eden,
Where, like us, he blighted fall,)
Hear the lesson we are reading;
Mark the awful truth we tell:


“Youth, on length of days presuming,
Who the paths of pleasure tread,
View us, late in beauty blooming,
Numbered now among the dead.


“What though yet no losses grieve you,
Gay with health and many a grace,
Let not cloudless skies deceive you;
Summer gives to autumn place.


“Yearly in our course returning,
Messengers of shortest stay,
Thus we preach this truth concerning,
Heaven and earth shall pass away.”


On the tree of life eternal,
O let all our hopes be laid:
This alone, forever vernal,
Bears a leaf that shall not fade.


---Alternative verses---


On the tree of life eternal,
Lord, let all our hopes be stayed!
This alone, forever vernal,
Bears a leaf that shall not fade.


On the tree of life eternal,
Let our hopes of heaven be laid!
This alone, forever vernal,
Bears a leaf that shall not fade.
