Kindly Spring Again Is Here ~ John Newton

 

Kindly Spring Again Is Here

Kindly spring again is here,
Trees and fields in bloom appear;
Hark! the birds with artless lays
Warble their Creator’s praise.

Where in winter all was snow,
Now the flowers in clusters grow;
And the corn, in green array,
Promises a harvest-day.

Lord, afford a spring to me,
Let me feel like what I see;
Speak, and by Thy gracious voice,
Make my drooping soul rejoice.

On Thy garden deign to smile,
Raise the plants, enrich the soil;
Soon Thy presence will restore
Life to what seemed dead before.

  1. Beautiful!

    I have a love/hate relationship with my crabapple tree but for the few days it is in bloom, there is nothing prettier!

    So happy for you that you are surrounded by spring. Our spring is coming, too! (At least I keep telling myself that–it snowed again overnight)

  2. Lovely! How can a tree that is sooo beautiful in the spring become the tree that makes such a mess with so much mushed apples all over lawns and sidewalks in the fall? We have them everywhere where I live. The city used to love to decorate the boulevards and in front of houses with them. There are whole streets lined with these trees. Absolutely breathtaking in the springtime.

  3. Perhaps if I went outside and sang Newton’s hymn very loudly, Spring would be encouraged to come to Colorado!

    I’m thankful that the Lord brings a kindly spring to our drooping souls, regardless of weather.

    Gorgeous tree!
