some new life

there is but quiet
and white a cover of snow
just hush and dark night
save soft lamp moon
and belov’d earth below
it is dark in my heart
but some other light,
an outer bright does glow
this eve of Christmas
another truth, a hope
may press me, may show
my saving hope, my God
my love, my Christ to know
that upon my barren soul
some green thing…some new life
may grow
