lyrics

we sang
when winter came
our songs about light in the darkness
we always sang
when winter came
of hope that was born
in the darkness
we didn’t know what darkness was

you didn’t hear
an angel sing
no one with wings appeared to me
but Dr. Seuss’s Whos
and the children’s illustrated Bible
planted a seed
that grew into
an evergreen

and we could gather round

inside
at wintertide
we brought in the green of the forest
since ancient times
what never dies
though covered by snow
isn’t hopeless
still it stands tall and glows against the dark

you didn’t hear
an angel sing
no one with wings appeared to me
but good old Charlie Brown
and the children’s illustrated Bible
planted a seed
that grew into
an evergreen

and we could use it now
we could gather round
we could use it now
we sure could use it now

you didn’t hear
an angel sing
no one with wings appeared to me
but bells in Bedford Falls
and the children’s illustrated Bible
planted a seed
that grew into
an evergreen

and we could gather round
