"Like A Rose"




A Christmas Southern Gospel type song ~



Check this out on Chirbit


Like A Rose

He was born long ago, in a manger low,
Holy child, Prince of Peace, Son of God.
Wise men bearing gifts, knelt and worshipped Him,
Offering gold, frankincense and myrrh.
Like a rose of Sharon my Jesus lives.
Ever pure, fair and lovely is He.
He's the True Living Word, the Son of God,
Full of grace, tender mercy and love.

Shepherds watching their flocks on a starry night,
Saw a glorious light fill the sky.
Then a Heavenly Host from on high appeared,
Saying "Fear not, I bring good news."
Like a rose of Sharon my Jesus lives.
Ever pure, fair and lovely is He.
He's the True Living Word, the Son of God,
Full of grace, tender mercy and love.

Unto you, now is born, in Bethlehem,
Jesus, Savior, Christ the Lord.
Then the shepherds followed the shining star,
To the place where the infant lay.
Like a rose of Sharon my Jesus lives.
Ever pure, fair and lovely is He.
He's the True Living Word, the Son of God,
Full of grace, tender mercy and love.

God so loved the world that He gave His son,
As a light in the darkness to shine.
For the gift of God is eternal life,
Through Jesus Christ His Son.
Like a rose of Sharon my Jesus lives.
Ever pure, fair and lovely is He.
He's the True Living Word, the Son of God,
Full of grace, tender mercy and love.

Cathy, this is very pretty. My grandmother used to play the piano and made me a tape a few years ago for Christmas. She passed away last year the week before Christmas and I miss her so much. Keep up the good work. I bet your grandchildren are very proud of you as I was my grandmother. Also, thanks for the award. It is my first one!! I will post something as soon as I get a chance.

I love the way music lifts me into the Lord's presence and deepens my experience of Him. You have a beautiful gift to compose.

The flower is pretty, too.

Thanks for stopping by my place.
