This is the sixth song written for primary age children so they can be encouraged to think about science as part of God’s creation and to look at how the sciences can help us understand the glory of that creation.
The songs are easy to learn and easy to sing because most of them have tunes that will be recognised. The scientific basis has been checked by well-qualified scientists to give anyone who uses them confidence. We hope you will enjoy the songs. If you should feel daunted by the possibility of being asked questions you can’t answer, you may find Keynotes and FAQs helpful
If you enjoy this song, please pass it to other parents, teachers, youth leaders, carers you feel might also find it helpful.

Sing of God and Science: Song No 6
The Crunchy Leaves of Autumn (Tune: Cruger)
The crunchy leaves of autumn
Have beauty as they die;
The golds and reds and yellows
Make trees appear as fire.
The leaves need sap no longer
The trees will soon be bare
And ready for the winter’s
Fierce storms and icy air.
The trees rest through the winter
Then very soon we’ll see
The springtime haze of greening
As they grow buds and leaves.
Thank God for all the seasons
With colours rare and fine:
And pray to him, this beauty
Might last throughout all time.
