(Hear an audio sample in the Product Description.)
Look to the leaves of the fig tree:
when they bud, you know summer is near.
So take heart, the Beloved is coming,
healing our sin and our fear.
Tree of life in winter,
stir our hearts with cheer.
The healing of the nations comes.
The one who is coming, coming, is near.
Like a tree in the dead of winter
whose life is a secret within,
God's hidden grace will appear
to save us from death and sin.
