Hymn/Song Information

Winter obtrudes his deepening shades And




Winter obtrudes his deepening shades,
And sovereign like, our land invades:
His banner now has he unfurled,
And sways his sceptre o’er the world.


The flowing streams he binds in chains;
And fetters down our fertile plains;
Kingdoms and empires feel his power,
From sea to sea, from shore to shore.


The sun, he circumscribes his race,
Restrains his beams, and veils his face;
His icy mantle spreads around,
And humid vapours leave the ground.


Creatures the gloomy aspect mourn,
And wait reviving spring’s return;
Stern winter then resigns his reign,
And languid nature smiles again.


Oh Lord, ‘tis winter with my soul,
Do thou its chilling power control;
Dispel the mental clouds that rise,
And deign to bless with brighter skies.
