Beautiful Roses

Beautiful Roses

Beautiful Roses

Fine roses come from the thorns in life-

The trials, heartaches and pain

As God develops a beauty within us

Working all for our spiritual gain

Oh, how we desire that the prickly thorns

Be removed out of our life

But we'd desire it less if we knew God's best

Comes from that trouble and strife...

Paul prayed his thorn would be removed

Three times he sought God's hand

His plea was denied and Paul relied

On the Master's perfect plan...

Oh, how we bargain and beg the Father

To remove our painful thorn

But we'd desire it less if we knew God's best

And could see the roses form...

As He molds and develops us in His Kingdom

Such talents and gifts He adorns

Yet, never has there been a beautiful rosebush

Without the piercing thorns

Those stakes in our heart we feel unbearable

And everything in us opposes,

Are the very tools our designer uses

To develop Such Beautiful Roses...
