Hymn/Song Information

WE ALL DO FADE AS A LEAF




Time is winging us away
To our eternal home;
Life is but a winter’s day—
A journey to the tomb:
Youth and vigour soon will flee,
Blooming beauty lose its charms;
All that’s mortal soon shall be
Enclosed in death’s cold arms.


Time is winging us away
To our eternal home;
Life is but a winter’s day—
A journey to the tomb;
But the Christian shall enjoy
Health and beauty soon above;
Far beyond the world’s alloy,
Secure in Jesus’ love.

Time is winging us away
To our eternal home;
Life is but a winter’s day—
A journey to the tomb:
Youth and vigour soon will flee,
Blooming beauty lose its charms;
All that’s mortal soon will be
Enclosed in death’s cold arms.
