Ida Jenshus - Color Of The Sun lyrics

I was checking out my lawn
Wintertime was almost done
And birds were singing in the trees
While waiting for the sun
And I listened to the sound
While my eyes were looking down
Just beside my picket fence
I saw a flower on the ground

My, that little guy was wise
Tried to reach to my surprise
Every sunbeam from a cloudy sky
Despite the snow and ice
It was curious and young
And the spring had just begun
And it showed me
Shivering in the breeze
The color of the sun

May God bless you, little friend
May you last until the end of summer
When the autumn leaves will cover you again
I will keep you in my heart
As a very special sign
Of the greatest star upon the sky
Who gave you strength to climb

But when the evening glow
The sky was hidden by some clouds
And the rain was pouring down
And exposed dirt on every road
And I went out in the dawn
Found my footsteps on the lawn
But my little friend beside my picket fence
He was gone

I was filled with many kinds of thoughts
And grateful in my heart
And I thanked the Lord for giving me
This great rewarding part
Like the one I just experienced
While wondering around I found
Someone who could show me
The color of the sun

Later on I sat at home
And the day was almost gone
And I knew that deep inside
I missed that color of the sun
