Don’t you love the seasons,
The change in countryside?
As though we needed reasons
To pause and go outside.

To view with awe and wonder
The everlasting scene,
To rest from work and ponder
What all of this can mean?

Is budding branch of spring
Or glistening drop of dew
A means that God may use to bring
Belief in Him to you?

His are the summer’s radiant flower
And autumn’s rich display.
Through winter gale He shows His power
To lead us in His way.

18. For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness,

19. because that which is known about God is evident within them; for God made it evident to them.

20. For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made, so that they are without excuse. (NAS)
