The Snowdrop ©

Joe Sharp
Stra'ven, Scotland
2007

Once upon a daylong time ago, a snowdrop pierced the cold winter snow
Jesus, I pray that this fine day, may last until the flowers of May
The Lord had heard and duly granted, the wishes of the seed he'd planted
Once upon a daylong time ago

Once upon a daylong time ago, a daffodil bathed in a warm yellow glow
Master of wonder, awesome power, I thank you for my golden flower
God above had His sound reason, the snowdrop growing through the season
Once upon a daylong time ago

Once upon a daylong time ago, in the oaken wood where the daisies grow
Lord, I see the children having fun, threading garlands of daisies in the sun
He, who is the Shepherd of the night, will guide his little snowdrop safe into the light
Once upon a daylong time ago

Once upon a daylong time ago, a bluebell in the dell rang a bright hello
Father, are there angels up on high, ringing out their joy across the sky?
Follow my lamp and it will show the way, pray my little snowdrop pray
Once upon a daylong time ago

Once upon a daylong time ago, the snowdrop was kissing under mistletoe
My Saviour, is kissing allowed, sailing in the heavens on a silver cloud?
Sweet little flower, if kissing at Christmas is all that you would seek
Then not a lot can go wrong with a peck upon a cheek
Once upon a daylong time ago
