From seeds that through the chill await
The Son light from above
Come buds of hope that bloom in faith,
The product of His love.

The blooms attract the passer-by
To take a closer peek
Their beauty pleasing to the eye
Compared to winter bleak.

Their pleasant fragrance fills the air
With sweetness and perfume
This place that long was dead and bare
Now bursting into bloom.

The garden of the Lord is fair
And fair His planted ones
By Word and Spirit’s tender care
They’ll bloom despite what comes.

He cuts and prunes as He knows best
So we might blossom more
And in our daily lives attest
The One we’re living for.

Though every one is quite unique
Yet each one has its place
And all in unison bespeak
The wonder of His grace.

All bloom beneath His watchful eye
Not a single one will fail
And though the outward petals die
The inward will prevail.

Accept Jesus as Your Savior Right Now and be Certain of Eternal Life.
