We will see

Before the ice is on the ground
before the birds all go
or the virgin autumn ends
tarnished by the snow -

Before the stars are blemished
and laid on the Christmas tree
before all this has come and gone
God's wonders, we will see

Oh let me touch the waters
waiting for this day
and walk upon the sunrise
on Jesus' birthday

That which speaks of love, do so
when everyone's together
Christmas night will be aglow
no matter what the weather
