“I am the Resurrection and the Life
Whoever lives and believes in me shall never die.”

The trees and the grass, much the worse for wear
Will soon spring to life, for through God’s loving care
The natural order of God’s perfect plan
Brings life, both to earth and to sleeping man
Waiting to hear the song of the first returning bird
We realize, once more, it’s the sweetest song we’ve heard
Perennials stubbornly pushing their way up through the earth
A celebration of new life, for it’s a glorious rebirth
The streams set free from winter’s icy grasp
Flow through glade and glen, free from winter’s chilling blast
The earth in it’s awakening, its splendor to unfold
Is part of God’s plan that often remains untold
A wonderful restoration, new life from God above
The earth, clothed in beauty, man awakened by God’s love!
