Heaped With Wonder

 Does this no-two-ways-about-it verse not heap your heart with wonder?!

"Come now, let us settle the matter," says the LORD.
"Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow;
though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool.

 Nature's decorator has been busy creating wonder as well!

Barren sweep is heaped with wonder
Nature’s decorator wins
With a wash of soft white plunder
Earth is festooned for Her King

Barren deep is heaped with gladness
Mercy’s mediator wins
White as snow redemption’s promise
Prepares hearts to meet Their King

Barren hills are filled with worship
Barren will reborn through Him
Like a barren earth replenished
With the beauty of the King 

Sing a song of purest wonder
Like the snow, grace covers sin
Turn your heart into a manger
Humbly holding Christ the King
