Rejoice! The earth is awakening, new life He brings to the land.
If you listen closely, you”ll hear it wake from its slumber.
The dark cold earth is softening in the springtime sun,
Rejoicing as it escapes from its frozen tomb.
The farmer readies himself to prepare the land for its symphony of growth.
The sky is so crisp and blue.
The animals everywhere sense the change.
They relax in the warmth of the Father’s sun.
No longer do they have to stand tense against the harsh cold wind.
A little lamb frolics in the pasture,
A baby calf nuzzles its mother,
A colt tries to stand.
The grasses and field flowers burst forth in an ecstasy of green, violet, crimson, yellow and blue.
The trees seem to shout as they burst forth with new leaves.
Oh to see the earth come alive again,
to hear the birds singing their songs as if rejoicing–it is Spring!
The Lord is good to give us this season of awakening, of growth and promise.
Rejoice! It is Spring!
