Seasons of the Year.
July 12, 2011
Generall Observation from their Seasons of the Yeere,
The Sunne, and Moone, and Starres and Seasons of the yeere doe preach a God to all the sonnes of men, that they which know no letters, doe yet read an eternall Power and Godhead in these.
1. The Sun and Moone and Stars doe preach,
The Dayes and Nights sound out
Spring, Summer, Fall, and Winter eke,
Each Moneth and Yeere about.
2. So that the wildest sonnes of men
Without excuse shall say,
God’s righteous sentence past on us,
(In dreadfull judgement day.)
3. If so, what doome is theirs that see,
Not onely Nature’s light,
But Sun of Righteousnesse, yet chose
To live in darkest Night?
