Rose of Sharon

Jesus, Rose of Sharon
Ida A. Guirey - 1922
 

Jesus, Rose of Sharon, bloom within my heart;
Beauties of Thy truth and holiness impart,
That where’er I go my life may shed abroad
Fragrance of the knowledge of the love of God.

Refrain:
  • Jesus, Rose of Sharon,
    Bloom in radiance and in love within my heart.


Jesus, Rose of Sharon, sweeter far to see
Than the fairest flowers of earth could ever be,
Fill my life completely, adding more each day
Of Thy grace divine, and purity I pray.

Refrain:
  • Jesus, Rose of Sharon,
    Bloom in radiance and in love within my heart.

Jesus, Rose of Sharon, balm for every ill,
May Thy tender mercy’s healing pow’r distil
For afflicted souls of weary burdened men,
Giving needy mortals health and hope again.

Refrain:
  • Jesus, Rose of Sharon,
    Bloom in radiance and in love within my heart.


Jesus, Rose of Sharon, bloom forevermore;
Be Thy glory seen on earth from shore to shore,
Till the nations own Thy sov’reignty complete,
Lay their honors down and worship at Thy feet.

Refrain:
  • Jesus, Rose of Sharon,
    Bloom in radiance and in love within my heart.


Have a blessed week!

  12. I've never seen the words to that hymn. It is beautiful. Your pictures are beautiful too. That must be a double Rose of Sharon. After years of trying, I finally have two Rose of Sharon bushes blooming in the yard, and several small ones started in pots. I love them! I was wondering where Rose of Sharon was mentioned in the Bible and found that it's in Songs of Solomon 2,1 so I'm going to read that tonight. Enjoyed your post.

  17. Hello Debby, I saw you on my friend Diane's blog. These pink flowers are so pretty. I've never heard this hymn before. You have such a lovely blog with many wonderful pictures. Me and my daughters also have a blog, and we would love it if you would visit us and follow. I would certainly come back and follow you as well. It's nice to meet new friends, and I hope to hear from you.

    Have a sweet day.
