1 I have found the Rose of Sharon,
Ever precious to my heart;
‘Tis the rarest of the flowers,
Never from it would I part.
Jesus is the Rose of Sharon,
None so fair can ever be,
Loveliest of all the flowers,
Dearest in the world to me.
2 Sweet and precious Rose of Sharon,
To thy name we offer praise;
May thy fadeless bloom and fragrance
Cheer our swiftly passing days. [Refrain]
3 Make us like the Rose of Sharon,
More like him whose love we know;
May our lies show forth his beauty
In whose image we would grow. [Refrain]
4 How we love thee, Rose of Sharon!
How thy name we do adore!
We will bloom with thee in heaven
When our life on earth is o’er. [Refrain]Source: Songs of Grace and Glory: A New and Inspiring Selection of Sacred Songs for Evangelical Use and General Worship #83
