Beauties of thy truth and holiness impart,
That where'er I go my life may shed abroad
Fragrance of the knowlegde of the love of God.
Jesus, (Blessed Jesus) Rose of Sharon, (Rose of Sharon)
Bloom in radiance and in love within my heart.
Jesus, Rose of Sharon, sweeter far to see
Than the fairest flow'rs 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 every ill,
May Thy tender mercy's healing pow'r distill
For afflicted souls of weary, burdened men,
Giving needy mortals health and hope again.
Jesus, Rose of Sharon, bloom forever more;
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.

thought I would share another of my favorite hymns. I learned
this many years ago and was delighted when I found it in a
hymnal. These flowers are from my Rose of Sharon's, whenever I
see them I think of this hymn. Very pretty. May the love of
the Lord bloom within our hearts each and everyday, with much fragrance
