Countrysideís whiteout
Roads ice over
Snowflakes drift down
On winterís watch

Godís arctic creatures
In white wooly coats
Are camouflaged and safe
On winterís watch

Big furry bears
Lay still in hidden dens
They're all sleepy and sluggish
On winterís watch

Geese, they fly south
Grouse, they snow roost
Horned owls, they hoot
On winterís watch

Polar bears go swimming
Penguins go sliding
Seals go a diving
On winterís watch

Frosty northern airs
Come blowing in
Refresh the restless of souls
On winterís watch

Man made snowmen
Hanging ice crystals
Falling snowflakes
On winterís watch

Snowy hurricanes
Blow on mountaintops
Make their wooly blankets
On winterís watch

Clean and fresh
Brisk and crisp
Frosty enthusiasm
On winterís watch

Invisible black ice
Dark frosty nights
Polar northern lights
On winterís watch

Habits change from
Hyper to forty winks
Animal begin their hibernations
On winterís watch

Green has turned white
Their roots are now sleeping
They will not rise up, not
On winterís watch

Every time, God is good
Every season, He is great
Let us thank Him most especially
On winterís watch
