Wheat and Barley

Wheat and barley, forest, field –
Row of trees to form a shield –
Golden light betokens day:
Better we leave off this way

Rain and harbor, stock and stone –
One path back that leads alone –
Darkened sky that signals night:
Lord, please help me do
What’s right

  1. i used to sing this little song while out riding my pony:
    God has created a new day, silver and green and gold. Grant that the sunset may find us worthy His gifts to hold. The tune is a simple round and the meter fit the beats of Joker’s trot or walk very nicely.
