Hymn of Promise

At Church today, our soloist sang the following which I think is beautiful and wanted to share it.

In the bulb there is a flower; in the seed, an apple tree; in cocoons, a hidden promise; butterflies will soon be free!  In the cold and snow of winter, there’s a spring that waits to be, unrevealed until its season, something God alone can see.  There’s a song in every silence, seeking word and melody; there’s a dawn in every darkness, bringing hope to you and me.  From the past will come the future; what it holds, a mystery, unrevealed until its season, something God alone can see.  In our end is our beginning; in our time, infinity.  In our doubt, there is believing; in our life, eternity.  In our death, a resurrection; at the last, a victory, unrevealed until its season, something God alone can see; unrevealed until its season, something God alone can see.

As I reread this, I thought, this is a beautiful prayer!
