- Lord Jesus, my sweet Rose of Sharon,
My Prophet, my Priest, and my Kingó
To Thee I will sing all my praises,
For blessings Thy mercy doth bring.
All glory and honor to Jesus,
Who offered His life on the cross,
To open a fountain for sinners,
And purchase a world that was lost.
Sweet Rose of Sharon,
Blooming above for me.
- Oh, come help me sing of my Savior,
For He is the joy of my heart;
Come join in His service forever,
He will His rich graces impart.
I gaze at the wounds of my Savior,
From which that great fountain doth flow;
His word is my shield and my buckler,
By faith Iím made whiter than snow.
- In loveís verdant vale I am resting,
In Christ all my hope I confide;
My heart and my life He is blessing,
As humbly I walk by His side.
Iím living low down in the valley,
Where sweet Rose of Sharon doth bloom;
Oh, glory! its heavenly odor
With fragrance my soul doth perfume.
- Come, sinner, thy heart like the desert,
With sweet Rose of Sharon shall bloom;
íTwill blossom as flowers of summer,
His Spirit thy heart shall illume.
He paid all thy debt on Mount Calvíry,
He suffered that you might be free;
Oh, look, guilty one, there is mercy,
Thereís life and salvation for thee.
