(A Psalm of Purpose.)© Walterrean Salley
God ordained the seasons
To be determined by the elements.
He made them for a reason—
To bring him glory.
In spring, God gives the farmer
Seeds to plant.
In summer, he gives rain
To water the crops—
Bringing them to maturity.
During the fall, men
Graciously reap the harvest.
And in the winter, everyone enjoys
The fruit of his own labor—
Consuming the increase thereof.
Spring is the resurrection of life,
And summer is its peak.
Fall is the waning of life,
And winter is its demise.
A continuous cycle;
As long as the earth remains,
Spring, summer, fall and winter,
Shall never cease to bring God glory
