Rose in Bloom.........





Lovely rose,
Brilliant in bloom,
Beautiful vision
My heart to consume.

Lord Jesus, may I be
As one of these:
Beautiful, fragrant
Your heart to please.



As the soft bud
Emerging from earth,
May I stretch upward
To claim rebirth.

As the petals
Colorful and bright,
May my beauty grow
From Your luminous Light.



As the pattern
Of the petals ‘round,
May I circle about You,
Your love to abound.

As the fragrance of roses
Aromatic and sweet,
May my prayers rise to You
Lovely incense to greet.



As roses intertwine,
One next to another,
May my life bring joy
To sister and brother.

As amidst the beauty
Of the rose is the thorn,
May I recall Your agony,
The bitter Cross borne.



As the bloom withers,
As the petals do fall,
May I remember
Dust we are all.

As the rose petals
With earth become one,
May I recall the promise
Of You, God’s Son.



Eternal life we find
When to ourselves we die;
We become one with You
When flesh we crucify.
