  3. “There’s Always a Springtime”
    After the winter comes the spring
    To show us again that in everything
    There’s always renewal divinely planned,
    Flawlessly perfect, the work of God’s hand
    And just like the seasons that come and go
    When the flowers of spring lay buried in snow
    God sends to the heart in its winter of sadness
    A springtime awakening of new hope and gladness,
    And loved ones who sleep in a season of death
    Will too be awakened by God’s life-giving breath. HELEN STEINER RICE
