Behind The Song: Hillsong Worship Shares The Heart Behind Their Song “Seasons”

This week’s featured song story comes to us from Hillsong Worship. We’re excited to share with you the story behind their song “Seasons.”
“You think about God. God is God and He can do whatever He wants at any moment at any time. He can fulfill all His promises just like that.But so often He takes His time. There’s a lyric in the bridge of the song ‘you could’ve saved us in a second, instead you sent a child.’ I think Jesus is the perfect example of that. How God is so okay with playing the long game. Like sending a baby in order to fulfill a plan that would initiate 30 something years later and then roll out even into today. There’s so much in that.” – Hillsong Worship

“Season” Lyrics
VERSE 1
Like the frost on a rose
Winter comes for us all
Oh how nature acquaints us
With the nature of patience
Like a seed in the snow
I’ve been buried to grow
For Your promise is loyal
From seed to sequoia
PRE-CHORUS
I know
CHORUS
Though the winter is long even richer
The harvest it brings
Though my waiting prolongs even greater
Your promise for me like a seed
I believe that my season will come
VERSE 2
Lord I think of Your love
Like the low winter sun
As I gaze I am blinded
In the light of Your brightness
Like a fire to the snow
I’m renewed in Your warmth
Melt the ice of this wild soul
Till the barren is beautiful
BRIDGE
I can see the promise
I can see the future
You’re the God of seasons
I’m just in the winter
If all I know of harvest
Is that it’s worth my patience
Then if You’re not done working
God I’m not done waiting
You can see my promise
Even in the winter
Cause You’re the God of greatness
Even in a manger
For all I know of seasons
Is that You take Your time
You could have saved us in a second
Instead You sent a child
TAG
And when I finally see my tree
Still I believe there’s a season to come
VERSE 3
Like a seed You were sown
For the sake of us all
From Bethlehem’s soil
Grew Calvary’s sequoia
