When the Earth was green und the trees wore strong And the river satin to the warm, while sun. The hours were D?the and the days were long For life was working, and work was song? No wailing minor of thing undone And no black discord of hopes gone wrong; Life's sands were many, and slow to run. When the Harth is bleak and the trees aro pale And the cast wind cries through the falling rain. Draw close, dear heart, from the rising gale; We'll measure bravely our meager lalo Of wide, poor stubble and scanty grain. But, dear we have tried; if tho har? vest fall The U>rd of the Harvest will count our pain. When the trees nre gray und the Kurth Is white Ami the north wind sings in the chim? ney stone.
