1 Rose of Sharon, wondrous fair,
None can with my friend compare,
Chiefest of ten thousand He,
None so spotless e’er could be.

Refrain:
O, how lovely! O, how lovely!
Is my Saviour, brother, friend.
Says He’ll ne’er grow tired and leave me,
And His love will never end.

2 How He loves me, precious friend,
His all earthly love transcends,
Tho’ I’d left Him, darkest night,
Here He sought me, brought the light. [Refrain]

3 How I love Him, none can tell,
But He knows it, oh! so well,
I shall never from Him part,
He shall reign within my heart. [Refrain]

4 O, how lovely! just to know
He is with me where I go,
Thus we’ll live, my friend and I,
Till I meet Him in the sky. [Refrain]
