GRACE GROWS BEST IN WINTER

GRACE GROWS BEST IN WINTER 
I had but one joy,this apple
of my eye, to preach of Christ
,my Lord.Now I hang but by
a thread,but if I may say,
it is all of Christ’s spinning;
Day by day the bloom fell
off my branches and joy did 
cast its flower.And yet I might
still meet with joy up in the
rainbow’s bower.There the 
good Husbandman does pick
His rose and gather His lily.
The night will close the door 
And hasten my anchor within
the veil and I shall go away
to sleep,leaving others,now
to tell my tale.
