SS&S 431: NOTHING BUT LEAVES! THE SPIRIT GRIEVES

SS&S 431: NOTHING BUT LEAVES! THE SPIRIT GRIEVES

1. Nothing but leaves! the spirit grieves

O’er years of wasted life;

O’er sins indulged while conscience slept,

O’er vows and promises unkept;

And reaps, from years of strife,

Nothing but leaves! nothing but leaves!

 

2. Nothing but leaves! No gathered sheaves

Of life’s fair ripening grain:

We sow our seeds; lo, tares and weeds,

Words, idle words, for earnest deeds:

Then reap, with toil and pain,

Nothing but leaves! nothing but leaves!

 

3. Nothing but leaves! Sad memory weaves

No veil to hide the past:

And as we trace our weary way,

And count each lost and misspent day,

We sadly find at last—-

Nothing but leaves! nothing but leaves!

 

4. Ah! who shall thus the Master meet,

And bring but withered leaves?

Ah ! who shall at the Saviour’s feet,

Before the awful Judgment-seat,

Lay down, for golden sheaves,

Nothing but leaves, nothing but leaves?
