1 Stars gently beaming,
Shine upon a flow’r,
Heavn’s light is streaming,
In earth’s darkest hour.

Sweet Rose of Sharon
Beautiful to see.
Flow’r fair and fragrant,
Blossoming for me,
Sweet Rose of Sharon,
Nevermore to fade,
Life everlasting
Lingers in Thy shade.

2 Pure as a lily,
Fairer than the morn,
This lovely flow’ret,
Once on earth was born. [Refrain]

3 Fragrant Thy perfume,
Never fading hue,
Blest Rose of Sharon,
Beautiful to view! [Refrain]
