From winter to spring, the seasons roll
Every year it has been so,
Every year it will be.
When snow tarries into March or April,
Still we know that spring is coming soon,
The snow won’t last, the days do lengthen,
Bright, breezy days will follow.
We do not question it even though
We cannot see the grass or feel the warmth,
We have faith that Nature will not let us down.
So when we fear and feel afraid of death’s dark door
And what is to come, have faith that
God will not abandon us, and just as surely
As spring follows winter, so too does
Light follow darkness.
