Sunday's Song- Spring Is Coming

Sunrise Ocean Isle Beach

I honestly can't believe how warm it's been in the south where we live.  The last couple weeks it has been in the 60's or 70's!  And it's only February!  The forecast for this week shows more of the same.  I know winter will probably be back before I know it.  Spring can't possibly be coming this early, can it?

Spring Is Coming

We planted the seed while the tears of our grief sowed the ground
The sky lost its sun and the world lost it’s green to lifeless brown
Now the chill in the wind has turned the earth hard as stone
And silent the seed lies beneath ice and snow
And my heart’s heavy now, but I’m not letting go
Of this hope I have that tells me

Spring is coming, Spring is coming
And all we’ve been hoping and longing for
Soon will appear
Spring is coming, Spring is coming
It won’t be long now
It’s just about here

Hear the birds start to sing
Feel the life in the breeze
Watch the ice melt away
The kids are coming out to play
Feel the sun on your skin
Growing strong and warm again
Watch the ground
There’s something moving
Something is breaking through
New life is breaking through

Spring is coming, Spring is coming
All we’ve been hoping and longing for
Soon will appear
Spring is coming, Spring is coming
And it won’t be long now
It’s just about here

Spring is coming (Out of these ashes beauty will rise)
Spring is coming (Sorrow will be turned to joy)
All we’ve been hoping and longing for (All we’ve hoped for)
Soon will appear (Soon will appear)
Spring is coming (Out of the darkness beauty will shine)
Spring is coming (All of earth and heaven rejoice)
It won’t be long (Spring is coming soon)
It’s just about here (Spring is coming soon)

Yes, it's glorious here too! It's 80 degrees today (although they say that it's going to be down to 57 tomorrow, and that's not nice!
