381. Jesus, Rose of Sharon

1 Jesus, Rose of Sharon, bloom within my heart;
Beauties of Thy truth and holiness impart,
That where’er I go my life may shed abroad
Fragrance of the knowledge of the love of God.

Jesus, Rose of Sharon,
Bloom in radiance and in love within my heart.

2 Jesus, Rose of Sharon, sweeter far to me
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. (Refrain)

3 Jesus, Rose of Sharon, balm for ev’ry ill,
May Thy tender mercy’s healing power distil
For afflicted souls of weary, burdened men,
Giving needy mortals health and hope again. (Refrain)

4 Jesus, Rose of Sharon, bloom forevermore;
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. (Refrain)
