Love is like a rose, the joy of all the earth... Love is like a lovely rose, the world's delight.
In the bleak midwinter Frosty wind made moan, Earth stood hard as iron, Water like a stone; Snow had fallen, snow on snow, Snow on snow, In the bleak midwinter, Long ago.
Were there no God, we would be in this glorious world with grateful hearts, and no one to thank.
For there is no friend like a sister in calm or stormy weather; To cheer one on the tedious way, to fetch one if one goes astray, to lift one if one totters down, to strengthen whilst one stands.
Obedience is the fruit of faith.
Better by far you should forget and smile Than that you should remember and be sad.
Spring is when life’s alive in everything.
