The Seasons - a winter hymn
Fall of snow makes all things new
perfect for a month or two;
underneath, decay and mold,
put on temporary hold.
Spring, the wheel will turn again
summer sun and autumn rain
then the winter tolls the bell,
nature’s endless carousel.
Only Christ can change the heart,
love provide another start.
Only Spirit breaks the wheel
only Jesus’ hands can heal
Then the new year will be new
counted righteous , through and through
fear and violence, truly past
trust and grace and love, at last!
God our winter, at the crčche
God our spring when life is fresh
God our summer, God our growth
end and consummation, both.
to the tune: Song 13
180, Common Praise
