I sit gazing out my window on a cold December day
The vibrant autumn colors now replaced by shades of gray

The rain is beginning and it's starting now to freeze
Ice is covering everything, the deck, the yard, the trees

This world looks so beautiful as if encased in glass
Everything's turned crystal, each limb, each blade of grass

The snow begins falling and coats the world in white
Trees cradle clouds of snow, what a lovely sight

Boughs are now so heavy, they're bending to the ground
The world now is silent as the snow comes drifting down

God's turned the gray of winter into a land that's so pristine
A cardinal lights upon a branch and completes His lovely scene
