When days seem
gentle and hearts melt,
So like the loving touch of God,
Let your heart know how Jesus felt,
When upon this land He thus trod.
When tears flow in streams of sweetness,
As love’s shown to all by God's Love,
In a heart dwells joy’s completeness,
For there’s so much delight thereof.
When the beauty of friendship loves,
Know how Jesus felt when He gave,
Fragrant blooms or sweet singing doves,
How sweet this scent, this sound does rave.
When gentle hearts cherish the fine,
Priceless treasures of tenderness,
Like jewels gleam in shades Divine,
Sweet bouquets bud life’s preciousness.
When days are gentle and hearts melt,
And the beauty of friendship lives,
Truly live, know how Jesus felt,
For this rose of friendship e’er gives.
Know how Jesus felt without end,
Let His Love live forevermore,
The fragrance of the rose will send,
Life’s loving friendship to your door.
