Autumn Days: how to celebrate Harvest in school
The woman whose hymn about mid-flight refuelling caused a church's choristers to walk out defended her song of praise to the jet plane yesterday. Estelle White, 70, a former nun and retired teacher of music and religion, wrote the hymn Autumn Days, which prompted choristers at 12th-century St Mary's church in Wroxham, Norfolk, to throw down their hymn books in disgust. Choir mistress Carole Tims and half her songsters quit when their vicar, the Rev Andrew Parsons, asked them to sing the hymn, which begins:. They felt that singing in praise of jet planes was not appropriate at the annual harvest festival. Miss White thought the objections "ridiculous".

Thank you so much. I went through hell to find the full ltyrics to this song. I'm only 17 but in primary school around the ages of i remember us rarely getting to sing this song as an entire school, and it flooded back memories. Thanks for the full lyrics :D. Ah, thanks for saying thanks!
This is the first verse in the beautiful hymn Autumn Days by Estelle White who died aged 85 at the beginning of this year. It was one of my favourite assembly songs because it is about my favourite season. Schools all over the country will be getting ready to hold their harvest festivals and for us it was always a special event. All the schools where I was headteacher were in areas considered to be socially deprived rather than affluent. Many of the homes were low income families where some, if not all, the adults did not work but that never stopped the parents responding well to the annual request for produce. Cook always enjoyed showing off her bread-making skills by producing the harvest loaf which was in pride of place in the display.
