The winter chill has relinquished the hold on the world,
But every now and then the stubborn wind begins to swirl.
The bright Sun bathes the land in a blanket so warm,
As if, it is forbidding the hint of a storm.
The seasons come and the seasons go.
Each one entering with a beautiful glow.
Giving way to the one to follow.
So unwilling to surrender
The world's magnificent splendor.
This is what you fashioned for us all.
Life has seasons: winter, spring, summer and fall,
It will not be long before I see your face.
And welcome your warm embrace.
Until I hear your distant call to come home
To reside with you in the celestial dome.
I will face each and every season.
With total grace for one reason
To abandon my life to you my Lord
For it is you I truly adore.
