Now here it is, tis come at last
That cold and windy winter’s blast
With ice and snow and crippling sleet
For who can manage on his feet ?
The chill invades most everywhere
How will the birds take to the air,
The squirrels nestled in their dens
Will shiver much before this ends.
While all God’s creatures in the yard
Must find the going rather hard
Dear Lord above, please hear our plea
And save us from calamity !
