ANNUAL FUNCTION CLASS 1 - 2
Nature bestows her own richest gifts and with lavish hands, she works in shifts.
When spring unlocks the flowers to paint the laughing soil;
When summer’s balmy breezes refresh the mower’s toil;
When winter holds in frosty chains the fallow and the food;
In God the earth rejoices still, and owns her Maker good.
