Lyrics

A memory of Eden stirs,
and walks within the warmth of spring;
It whispers ev'ry hope God has
to Life Eternal, listening.

Stretch past the glo,Om of winter's grey,
unfurl by faith and not by sight;
to touch the light of length'ning days
that calls thee forth to green delight.

The season of new growth begins,
embrace the promise we all share;
lift ev'ry voice and celebrate,
the living God, who's always there.
