A ROSE AMONG THE THORNS

Earnest C. Martin

While strolling through the fields of time,
There's many things to see.
But nature is the greatest site
That there could ever be.
The greatest of all to me
Is how the world was formed.
And why the roses have to live
Each day among the thorns.

One day among a world of thorns
A Rose began to grow.
It was the greatest gift of God
This world will ever know.
It was the will of God to show
That since the world was formed
There had to be a Rose to live
And die among the thorns.

Two thousand years will soon be gone
Since God looked down in love.
There in the town of Bethlehem
A Rose began to bud.
It lived to bloom until one day
Was crushed with awful frown.
And then in love from God above
Was moved to higher ground.

One day among a world of thorns
A Rose began to grow.
It was the greatest gift of God
This world will ever know.
It was the will of God to show
That since the world was formed
There had to be a Rose to live
And die among the thorns.

  1. Great Song very uplifting. The rose in this song is kinda like we are it started at the bottom and before it was over it was moved to higher ground. When we get saved we start out small and before you know it were high on the mountain. The Lord Loves us to much to leave us at the bottom. The way you get high on that mountain is trusting the Lord fully and with A positive attitude.
    GOD BLESS
