On a Golden Springtime

These are sweet words from a children's song with an even sweeter message.  May we ponder and reflect upon their significance as we think of our own lives, the newness of life we'll see during the upcoming Spring, we, like little seedlings, must stretch up towards the Light for our further growth and development.    

On a golden springtime, underneath the ground,  
A tiny seedling lay asleep until the sun shone down.
Awake, awake, O little seed!
Push upward to the light!
The day is bright. With all your might,
push upward to the light!

On a golden springtime, Jesus Christ awoke
And left the tomb where he had lain; the bands of death he broke.
Awake, awake, O sleeping world!
Look upward to the light,
For now all men may live again.
Look upward to the light!

Resurrection of Jesus Christ

On a golden springtime, in a forest glade,
The Father and the Son appeared as Joseph knelt and prayed.
Awake, awake, O nations all!
Receive the gospel light!
The gospel true is here for you.
Receive its glorious light!
