"When Winter Is Upon You"

“When Winter Is Upon You”

When winter is upon you and nothing seems to grow
And everything around you seems covered in a blanket of snow
Remember sleeping is for a season… Springtime is near
And all the seeds are growing and soon will appear

Grow high… Grow high…
and grow with me
Open your arms to the sky…
and grow with me

Our Creator is drawing night…
grow with me
Listen to the waking cry
and grow with me

When your labor seems to have no yield and your body is tired
Remember the snow-white field and the harvest is sired
Resting is for a season… then comes the joy of the dance
For every fruit there is a season… in every circumstance
