God In A Rose

From Heart Talk by Jack Branch



God In a Rose

There was no hint of beauty
In the crown of thorns He wore
As His sacred head was bleeding
And the crowd cried out for more;
No loveliness in Jesus
As He hung on calvary's tree
But the cross He bore
And the thorns He wore
Make Him beautiful to me.

When the thorns that I encounter
Pierce my heart with grief and pain,
I will lift my eyes to Jesus;
He'll renew my strength again.
As I lean upon my Jesus
He will make my trials grow dim
And my heartfelt plea
And my bent knee
Make me beautiful to Him.
