Jesus, Rose Of Sharon

IMG_2806

I am the Rose of Sharon, and the Lily of the Valleys.
Song of Solomon 2:1


Jesus, Rose of Sharon, bloom within my heart
Beauties of Thy truth and holiness impart
That where’er I go my life may shed abroad
Fragrance of the knowledge of the love of God

Jesus, Rose of Sharon, sweeter far to see
Than the fairest flowers of earth could ever be
Fill my life completely, adding more each day
Of Thy grace divine and purity, I pray

Jesus, Rose of Sharon, balm for ev’ry ill
May Thy tender mercy’s healing power distil
For afflicted souls of weary burdened men
Giving needy mortals health and hope again

Jesus, Rose of Sharon, bloom forevermore
Be Thy glory seen on earth from shore to shore
Till the nations own Thy sov’reignty complete
Lay their honors down and worship at Thy feet

Jesus, blessed Jesus, Rose of Sharon
Bloom in radiance
And in love within my heart




Song: 'Jesus Rose of Sharon'
Words by Ida A. Gutrey
Music by Charles H. Gabriel
