Rose of the Cross

Representative Text

1 Rose of the Cross, thou mystic flower!
I lift my heart to thee;
In ev'ry melancholy hour,
Mary, Mary, remember me,
Mary, Mary, remember me.

2 A wand'rer here through many a wild,
Where few their way can see,--
Bloom with fragrance on thy child,
Mary, Mary remember me.

3 Let me but stand where thou hast stood,
Beside the crimson tree,
And by the water and the blood,
Mary, etc.

4 There let me wash my sinful soul,
And be from sin set free;
Drawn by thy love, by grace made whole,
Mary, etc.

5 Lead me forever to adore
The glorious One in Three;
And whilst I tremble more and more,
Mary, etc.
