Representative Text

1 Where the roses never fade,
Never lose their fragrance sweet,
Where no grief our homes invade,
And our triumph is complete.
There above life’s sordid cares,
There in robes of light array’d,
We shall greet our lov’d so fair,
Where the roses never fade.

Refrain:
Glorious home! Sweet home of song,
Where no sorrow casts its shade;
We shall greet the heav’nly throng,
Where the roses never fade.

2 Hearts that here in sorrow grieve,
Growing weary of the way,
There in fulness shall receive,
Blessings, rich from day to day.
There are gain a sweeter bliss,
Gain the gifts so long delay’d,
In a fairer world than this,
Where the roses never fade. [Refrain]

3 Where the roses never fade,
Life is bright as summer’s day,
There all fear shall be allayed
In that home not far away.
Here we toil thro’ grief and strife,
Toil with fainting heart dismay’d;
There is life, immortal life,
Where the roses never fade. [Refrain]

4 Then bid ev’ry fear depart,
Strive each day our work to do,
Bless and help each sorrowing heart
To be noble, good, and true.
Time is passing fast away,
Let no duty be delay’d,
Soon we’ll reach that golden day,
Where the roses never fade. [Refrain]
