Description

Two texts to the tune O Waly Waly: one for Eastertide/Spring/Summer and one for Christmastide.
SATB and organ.  Also available for two-part choir.

Eastertide:

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 gloom 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.

Christmastide:

A memory of winter stirs,
and sees the cold stars glistening;
It whispers ev'ry hope God has
to Life Eternal, listening.

Remember how true love became
a baby born upon the hay;
And heaven filled the air with song,
While simple shepherds knelt to pray.

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