Winter Snow

Winter Snow

                                                                                                       
Could’ve come like a mighty storm

with all the strength of a hurricane
You could’ve come like a forrest 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

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

No, your voice wasn’t in a bush burning
No, your voice wasn’t in a rushing wind
It was still, it was small, it was hidden.
