ROSES WILL BLOOM AGAIN

Marcia B. Henry

I planted a little rose bush, I tended it with care,
Its buds began to blossom; their fragrance filled the air
But when winter came it withered; the petals drooped and fell to the ground,
My heart sank as it faded, but I'd forgotten who had made it.

Roses will bloom again; just wait and see
Don't mourn what might have been
Only God knows how and when that
Roses will bloom again.

Rose was his only sweetheart, a loving wife for forty years.
Cherished every day they had and held memories dear
He never dreamed he'd bury love and go on to live alone,
But as he lay his Rose to rest, he looked to heaven and tried his best
To believe that . . .

Roses will bloom again; just wait and see
Don't mourn what might have been
Only God knows how and when that
Roses will bloom again.

The precious Rose of Sharon, broken and bruised in cruel shame,
Stained on the cross of Calvary, so that men might be saved,
Satan cheered as He died, while Mary and the others cried,
Then God raised Him up from death's sleep and kept a promise only He could keep.

Roses will bloom again; just wait and see
Don't mourn what might have been
Only God knows how and when that
Roses will bloom again.
