Pause for Prayer: 1/26 - Hymn of Promise


A few days back my Pause for Prayer centered on needing some warmth in this season of snow and ice.  A faithful reader connected me to a song I'd not heard before, "Hymn of Promise."  For those of us looking for the promise of spring in the dead of winter, this is a beautiful song, perfect for pausing for prayer today...




Hymn of Promise 
- by Natalie Allyn Wakeley Sleeth
In the bulb there is a flower; in the seed, an apple tree;
In cocoons, a hidden promise: butterflies will soon be free!
In the cold and snow of winter there’s a spring that waits to be,
Unrevealed until its season, something God alone can see.

There’s a song in every silence, seeking word and melody;
There’s a dawn in every darkness, bringing hope to you and me.
From the past will come the future; what it holds, a mystery,
Unrevealed until its season, something God alone can see.

In our end is our beginning; in our time, infinity;
In our doubt there is believing; in our life, eternity,
In our death, a resurrection; at the last, a victory,
Unrevealed until its season, something God alone can see.
