WINTER SOLSTICE WONDER

WINTER SOLSTICE WONDER

 

Celebrate the Son of God,

The Sun is getting higher…

Though we’re in the thick of night

Let’s raise a blazing fire.

Evergreens, eternal life

And hope in winter bringing…

Hark–I hear signs of life—

Winter cardinals singing!

Moonlit snow is blinding

To the wide awake…

All of us must ope’ our eyes,

New life to grab and take.

Winter’s grip is fading

Despite the coming storms…

Knowing we are in God’s Love

Is knowledge that warms!
