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