Winter Snow

Could've come like a mighty storm
With all the strength of a hurricane
You could have come like a forest fire
with the power of Heaven in your flame





But you came like a winter snow
quiet and soft and slow
falling from the sky in the night
to the earth below




You could've swept in like a tidal wave
or an ocean to ravish our hearts
you could've come through like a roaring flood
to wipe away the things we've scarred






But you came like a winter snow, yes, you did

you were quiet and soft and slow

falling from the sky in the night

to the earth below







Oh no, your voice wasn't in a bush burning
your voice wasn't in a rushing wind
it was still, it was small, it was hidden





Oh, you came like a winter snow
quiet, soft, and slow
falling from the sky in the night
to the earth below







falling, oh yeah, to the earth below
you came falling from the sky in the night
to the earth below
