Nothing but leaves


Nothing but leaves! The Spirit grieves
Oíer years of wasted life;
Oíer sins indulged while conscience slept,
Oíer vows and promises unkept,
And reap, from years of strifeó

Nothing but leaves!
Nothing but leaves!
Nothing but leaves! No gathered sheaves
Of lifeís fair ripíning grain:
We sow our seeds; lo! tares and weeds,
Words, idle words, for earnest deedsó
Then reap, with toil and pain,
Nothing but leaves!
Nothing but leaves!

Nothing but leaves! Sad memíry weaves
No veil to hide the past;
And as we trace our weary way,
And count each lost and misspent day,
We sadly find at lastó
Nothing but leaves!
Nothing but leaves!

Ah, who shall thus the Master meet,
And bring but withered leaves?
Ah, who shall, at the Saviorís feet,
Before the awful judgment seat,
Lay down, for golden sheaves,
Nothing but leaves!
Nothing but leaves!
