A Hymn for Autumn

Here is a hymn I wrote for Autumn.  It is the first hymn I created the music for with the help of my good friend, Harold Hellam.  Harold arranged it for me.  What a thrill to hear the congregation in our church sing it for the first time!  Praise God for his many blessings.


Autumn Wears A Coat of Many Colours

Autumn wears a coat of many colours

Just like Joseph long ago:

Red and copper, gold and orange,

Everything in autumn glows.



God made all the colours of the rainbow,

Sky above and earth below;

Blue and purple, green and yellow,

Everything that lives and grows.



God made all his children like a rainbow,

Round and round the earth we go:

Eyes that sparkle, smiles that brighten.

It’s God’s love that makes us glow!
