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!

Autumn’s End

by Mollie Pearce McKibbon  October 2012

The golden gowns of Autumn

Are tarnished now and shed

By Octobers scathing winds;

In tatters they are spread.

Scarlet robes vainglorious

Lie trampled underfoot

As bonfires bright burn up the night

Turning all to ash and soot.

The burnished moon of harvest

Is shrunken small and wan,

And all of summer’s singers

Have flown their nests and gone.
