I don't know, Lord, when I've ever longed so much
for buds and leaves and blooms to make their spring debut
and shade the forests, the streets and my own backyard
in all your palette's colors...
I don't know when I've looked so long for the day
when winter's remnant browns and grays give way
to all that spring can promise and summertime fulfill...
But I do know, Lord, how patiently you wait for me
to open to your grace and spirit stirring deep within,
calling my heart to a new season, to fresh growth,
and to life in colors I haven't yet imagined...
Bring on your springtime, Lord,
around me and within me!
