WINDING and grinding
Round goes the mill:
Winding and grinding
Should never stand still.
Ask not if neighbor
Grind great or small:
Spare not your labor,
Grind your wheat all.
Winding and grinding round goes the mill:
Winding and grinding should never stand still.

Winding and grinding
Work through the day,
Grief never minding --
Grind it away!
What though tears dropping
Rust as they fall?
Have no wheel stopping --
Work comforts all.
Winding and grinding round goes the mill:
Winding and grinding should never stand still.
