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.

Refrain:
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]
