Snow Fall Gentle
This week, Bryan shares the song he wrote Snow Fall Gentle after losing his daughter Kit to a congenital heart defect.

The day we learned she had a congenital heart defect, it snowed.
The day we buried her, it snowed.
The day I wrote this song, it snowed.
I watch the snow fall gentle on
The empty street below
My arms are cold and empty now
That she is gone, and while I know
There is a time to laugh a time to hurt
A time for death a time for birth
I don’t know why
I couldn’t have more time with her.
The snow keeps falling gentle
The cold keeps mocking me
And I’m reminded things are not
Just how they’re meant to be
I know the sun will come
And set this cold world free
Then maybe I could think of something simple
And watch the snow fall gentle
I think of all Your promises
Your gifts of love and grace
I think of how You lavish those
On such an undeserving race
But could I take the sun without the frost
Or see your throne without the cross?
I know her gain
Is so much greater than my loss.
