We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below. From the entire Hymnary.org team, our grateful thanks.

Rose, Rose, Rose

Representative Text

1 What is sweeter, tell me,
Than a pretty rose?
Fragrant in its beauty,
Loveliest flow’r that grows.

Refrain:
Rose, rose, rose,
Prettiest flow’r that grows,
Emblem of love that came from Heaven,
Thro' which a Savior, Christ, was given;
Rose, rose, rose,
Not till the whole world knows
Of my dear Savior King,
Will I cease to sing,
Sweet rose, rose, rose.

2 If a rose could whisper,
Could it, think you, tell
Of that blessed country
Where the angels dwell? [Refrain]

3 Jesus, keep me ever
Like unto this flow’r—
Pure and sweet and modest,
Every day and hour. [Refrain]
