A rose is the loveliest flower to see,
It faces the heavens to grow,
Beautiful long stems expose veiled buds to be,
A blossomed rose grown upward so.
Unfolded is the sweetest fragrance we know,
Gathering in all who are near,
And humbly we speak forth the Lord did bestow,
Jesus' aroma we revere.
And in life we can yield as the rose does sow,
Giving the sweet is e'er favored,
It will grow a blessing to all which will flow,
Jesus's sweet fragrance so savored.
The sweet perfume of Jesus' Loving Presence,
Surrounds those facing Him to know,
Just as a rose unfolds it's sweetest essence,
Life's nourished by Jesus to grow.
