Once in the season of falling snow
I saw a lady poised in deep despair
What drew her to that bridge I did not know
but I knew that time and destiny would not be fair

In my haste the sense of urgency lifted me
up through the falling snow and frigid night
And the Lord of hosts who gifted me
sent His sweet angel to guide me up in flight

As she leaped into the cold and lonely air
I sensed death would not agree to forgive
so I lunged forward by faith and with a silent prayer
I said to her take hold and live

As I pulled her from where the lair of death lies
she never turned away from looking into my eyes
