#musicmonday: Every Season | Nichole Nordeman

For some reason I thought it was Bethany Dillon and spent a long time searching fruitlessly until I decided to just google the lyrics I remembered.


Every evening sky, an invitation
To trace the patterned stars 
And early in July, a celebration 
For freedom that is ours 

And I notice you in children's games 
In those who watch them from the shade 
Every drop of sun is full of fun and wonder 
You are summer 

And even when the trees have just surrendered 
To the harvest time 
Forfeiting their leaves in late September 
And sending us inside 

Still I notice you when change begins 
And I am braced for colder winds 
I will offer thanks for what has been and what's to come 
You are autumn 

And everything in time and under Heaven 
Finally falls asleep 
Wrapped in blankets white, all creation 
Shivers underneath 

And still I notice you when branches crack 
And in my breath on frosted glass 
Even now in death, you open doors for life to enter 
You are winter 

And everything that's new has bravely surfaced 
Teaching us to breathe 
And what was frozen through is newly purposed 
Turning all things green 

So it is with You and how You make me new 
With every season's change 
And so it will be as You are re-creating me 
Summer, autumn, winter, spring


Because it is time. 
The seasons have turned, the year is ending.
The King is coming.
