Rose of Sharon

January 28, 2008


Roses! Masterpiece of art,
From our great Creator’s heart!
Colorful and fragrant too,
Sparkling fresh with speckled dew.

Petals fashioned with such grace,
Glowing beauty on each face.
As they smile and look above,
Seems they whisper, “God is Love!”


No words are there to well portray
The beauty of a rose display.
Amidst the thorns, they glow and shine
With glory from His hand divine.

And hearts are thrilled, drawn with love’s glow
To gaze in joy where roses grow.
But there’s a Rose more lovely far
Than anywhere rose gardens are.

The Rose of Sharon whom we love,
Who came from His bright throne above.
Our hearts are drawn to Him each day,
Our Savior and the Life, the Way!

Whose saving grace, whose loving power,
Can guard our lives each day, each hour.
We too can shine, in Him reborn,
Though plagued so oft by sin’s sharp thorn.

If we just come and gaze and pray,
His beauty soon our lives display.
Sin’s thorns in life soon will be gone,
When He comes back, Oh glorious dawn!

The Rose of Sharon, brigher far
Than anywhere rose gardens are!
Let’s take the time to stand and gaze
And learn of Him, love’s caring ways!

Only God could have created something so beautiful from thorns. And if He did that, He can help us grow something beautiful from the thorns in our life.

Blessings, Cricket
