Gold Leaves. TTBB

                                                                  words by G.K.Chesterton.  set to music by Elizabeth Sidebotham
Lo, I am come to autumn when all the leaves are gold.
Grey hairs and golden leaves cry out the year and I are old
Lo, I am come to autumn when all the leaves are gold.
Grey hairs and golden leaves cry out the year and I are old
In youth I sought the prince of men, captain in Cosmic Wars
Our Titan, even the weeds would show, defiant to the stars.
But now a great thing in the street seems any human nod,
Where shift in strange democracy the million masks of God’
In youth I sought the golden flow’r hidden in wood or wold
But I am come to autumn when all the leaves turn gold
Lo, I am come to autumn when all the leaves are gold
 I am come to autumn when all the leaves are gold.
