Harvest Gate at Diddington

Here is the wrought iron gate which leads onto the churchyard path at Diddington. It is bedecked with autumn leaves and looks rather lovely.

Heres a little ditty for harvest to the tune ” Country Garden”

It’s God who gives the harvest.


We eat the plants that grow from the seed

but it’s God who gives the harvest.

Cures can be made from herbs and from weeds

but it’s God who gives the harvest.

Ev’rything beneath the sun,

all the things we claim we’ve done,

all are part of God’s creation:

we can meet people’s needs

with the things we grow from seed,

but it’s God who gives the harvest.

We find the iron and turn it into steel,

but it’s God who gives the harvest.

We pull the levers, we turn the wheels,

but it’s God who gives the harvest.

Ev’rything  we say we’ve made,

plastic bags to metal spades,

all are part of God’s creation:

we can make lots of things

from microchips to springs,

but it’s God who gives the harvest.
