The Little Promises of Spring
by David Morrison
For the blue that emerges from winter’s gray skies
And the warming of yearning for eternity lifting in our hearts
We give you thanks, Father-Righteous One
For the winds that fall hard, blowing out the old dust
And the planting of little seeds of promise in our songs
We give you thanks, Jesus-Risen One
For the breaking of green through the iron earth
And the dawning hope of resurrection within us
We give you thanks, Spirit-Renewing One
For the birth of small creatures and the conception of vision
In the clear young morning of a new creation-
Within our lives and around the world today:
Thank you for your risen life.
Thank you for life rising.
We give you thanks for another Springtime of the Soul-
Father, Son, and Spirit Holy.
