GOD'S ROSE OF SHARON.

There is 'A Rose of Sharon',
Whose Body was once pierced through.
Encircled by A Crown of thorns, hung upon a wooden Cross,
to Bear the sins of me and you!

Throughout His Time upon this earth,
He Loved as no other had.
Bringing The Love of His Heavenly Father,
to the hurting, the sick and the sad!

The Luster of His Smile so Rare,
turned many hearts of stone.
Like the petals of The Rose for which He's Named,
He Brought Beauty to a world, which so ugly had grown!

His Voice, so Gentle,
Brought notes so soft.
To listen to Him Speak, for miles people would walk...
to have their thoughts lifted aloft!

His 'thorns' He Reserved for the Pharisees and such like,
who sought to keep people's spirits laden down.
He Hated what they did to God's Creation, grinding their faces deeper into the dirt -
with each 'tut', each sigh and each frown!

So, He Sought to do God's Bidding,
to set every captive Free.
Instead of feeling our shame and sorrow, He Took them upon Himself -
along with sickness - upon that Cross at Calvary!

His mortal enemy, satan, thought he'd won,
As Jesus Submitted His Spirit upon that Cross..
He didn't know that he'd sealed his own fate that day,
That the fuel for eternity is... his own hatred and devious dross!

There is 'A Rose of Sharon',
Whose Beauty is so Rare.
He Sits in Heavenly Places, 
Waiting to Welcome each one of us there!!!
