Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

Rose, Rose, Rose

Full 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]
