iWorship Wednesdays: Every season

I haven't listened to this song in years and when it came up via Shuffle I kept in on repeat...I just realised that even when I don't understand its wonderful to be loved by One who remains there through changing scenes and seasons. Its hard sometimes to see God as good through the horrible things that happen in life but which season is best...summer for its heat or spring for its newness? All seasons are necessary aren't they and does He cease to be God in winter's chill or autumn's nakedness?...Selah! Thanks Nicole Nordeman..

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 was 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 
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

Lovely lyrics, I also liked the soothing theme beneath the words. A blessed worship song indeed.

Just letting the music Myne said it has a soothing theme beneath the words...God is God alone
