Summer and autumn bleak,
Winter and flowery spring,
Sunshine and storm and calm—
Changes that time doth bring.
Joy that is nectar-sweet,
Love which is bliss to know,
Kindling on pallid cheek
Always a sunny glow.

Bosoms of young and old,
Changing their earthly life
Into a winter cold.
Poverty and distress,
Dreams that are fading fast,
Longings and fears and hope,
And heavenly peace at last.

Aye, as through life we go
None meet with only joy,
None only sorrow know.
