THROUGH THE DRIVEN SNOW

red candle in snow

Through the driven snow
Joy is bound to show
Bring your hearts aglow
In love with the season

Through the driven snow
Carols sweetly sow
Songs of things we know
Melodies of reason

Through the driven snow
Lights, sweet shadows throw
Tinsel trees, they grow
Jubilant elation

Through the driven snow
Though the sun be low
Stars may twinkle so
All across the nation

Oh! It may be snowing
The sun may be shining
The rains may be pouring
The winds may be howling
Your heart may be breaking
Your dreams may be longing
Wherever you are
Whoever you are
Time flies swiftly by
Christmas Day approaches
The little children waiting
With much anticipation
The presents are wrapping
The food is preparing
The family is coming
Neighbours gather around

And yet
Through the driven snow
Where hearts should be aglow
With the love that did flow
From eternity
Many hearts are crying
Many hearts are hanging low
And in many shattered dreams
Where love should be healing
Brokenness shatters seams

Boundless purity
So white, so pure, so light
Come and bring your cleansing love
Into our cold, cold hearts
Oh! Open our cold, cold, broken hearts
Pour in all that your free love brings
May we receive, and unwrap forever
All that your perfect love brings

Through the driven snow
Joy is bound to show
Bring your hearts aglow
In love with the season

Through the driven snow
Carols sweetly sow
Songs of things we know
Melodies of reason

Through the driven snow
Lights, sweet shadows throw
Tinsel trees, they grow
Jubilant elation

Through the driven snow
Though the sun be low
Stars may twinkle so
Love heals the nation

Through the driven snow
