When light grows dim in coldest winter’s night
No warmth to usher in love’s warming glow
The silence of the earth echoes your plight
And death hangs heavy on your fevered brow
Your restless body twists and turns in fear
A hammer in your head the only sound
A scream begins to rise the dark is near
No hope in you this dark night can be found
Remember soon will come Spring’s finest dawn
And flowers will spring again from earth’s deep cold
Let hope become your rock on this cold morn
Let love from Nature’s store your heart enfold
Hear now the birds are singing in the trees
Rise up my child defy dark winter’s freeze
