Seasons of life (seizoenen in het leven)
Springtime follows winter,
And each summer leads to fall.
The pattern of the seasons
Flow, and answer to God’s call.
Around us in his garden,
The flowers bloom and fade,
To sleep throughout the winter,
In each meadow wood and glade.
Some only stay a season,
So briefly we can share,
Their colour and their beauty,
Their soft perfume on the air.
God gives us all our seasons,
The sunshine and the rain.
He knows our joy and sadness,
He shares with us our pain
Let Him take your hand in autumn,
Feel the joy that His words bring,
For when we reach the peace of winter
We shall wake up to His spring.
