1 Rose of Sharon, Thy rich fragrance
Fills the air where’er I roam,
And the sweetness of Thy smiling
Checks my tears and lifts my gloom.
Sweeter, daily, Rose of Sharon,
Grows the fragrance of Thy name.
Onward, daily, my dear Savior,
Moves the splendor of Thy fame.
2 Rose of Sharon, Great Physician
Of the mind and of the heart,
Heavenly balsam Thou hast brought me
And I’m healed in ev’ry part. [Refrain]
3 Rose of Sharon, my dear Shepherd,
Feed the life in mercy giv’n,
Let me live and grow just like Thee
Till I’m ripe and meet for heav’n. [Refrain]
4 Then, O Rose, sweet Rose of Sharon,
Set me in the soil above;
Let me grow in Thy great garden,
In the frostless land of love. [Refrain]
5 Let me grow, bless’d Rose of Sharon,
As directed by Thy love.
Let me have thro’ endless ages,
Fellowship with Thee above. [Refrain]Source: The Finest of the Wheat No. 2 #150
