Apples of Gold

Apples of gold
Sweet honeycomb
Water refreshing
Coolness of snow
Strength for the living
Delight to the ear
Health for the body
Joy for the soul

Words that are blessings
Are treasures to hold
A pleasure to give
They delight as they go
For both those who speak
And those who will hear

Words that are written
Actions begun
Hands that will help
Hearts that will touch
A rebuke gently spoken
A challenge in time

Apples of gold
Sweet honeycomb
Water refreshing
Coolness of snow
Strength for the living
Delight to the ear
Health for the body
Joy for the soul
