Now Comes The Spring

I peeked outside my door today
and saw some children hard at play.
I didn't know that Spring had come;
so long I'd been inside my home.

The Winter chill had got me down,
and for some time I'd worn a frown.
But when I saw the kids at play,
it seemed my frown just slipped away.

When stepping on my porch I felt
that soon all Winter blues would melt.
Across the street I saw a child
picking flowers that were wild.

They were just growing by the street,
and as she picked, her smile was sweet.
It touched my heart and all I thought
was what great wonders God has wrought!

When you feel lonely, when you feel blue
by Winter's breath that rushes through,
always remember, when you can't sing,
in time The Lord will send the Spring.
