I want to be a rose
One that will never fade,
And win souls as Iím blooming,
That will never decay.
I want to have some purpose,
As I live this life for Him,
Because I truly love my Lord,
And I will serve Him to the end.
I want the peace that Jesus gives,
And joy within my heart,
I want the salvation He offers us,
That never will depart.
I want to be a blessing tonight,
To all that may pass me by,
I want to do it for You, Lord,
For it was for me You died.
I want to twinkle all the time,
Like the stars that shine at night,
So someone can see a sparkle,
And make my heart so bright.
Yes I want to be the perfect rose,
Just like Jesus, Godís own Son,
And never ever fade away,
For thereís much yet to be done.
