Iona quotes- 10 of
He gave us eyes to see them,
And lips that we might tell,
How great is God Almighty,
Who has made all things well.
All things bright and beautiful,
All creatures great and small,
There is a green hill far away,
Without a city wall,
Where the dear Lord was crucified,
Who died to save us all.
There was no other good enough
To pay the price of sin;
He only could unlock the gate
Of heaven and let us in.
The fireside for the cricket,
The wheatstack for the mouse,
Alas! in winter, dead and dark,
Where can poor Robin go?
Bright yellow, red, and orange,
The leaves come down in hosts;
Before a day was over,
Home comes the rover,
For mother's kiss--sweeter this
Than any other thing!
He slipped his hand and ran away!
He hadn't gone a yard when--Bang!
always keep a-hold of Nurse
For fear of finding something worse.
