This rose of
friendship I send to thee
For all the beauty you give to me.
My life was dull and incomplete
Now it's full, and oh so sweet!
The rose, a symbol of love so dear.
I send to you a heart so sincere.
Filled with God's delightful glow
With all my love to you, I show!
Bear ye one another's burdens,
and so fulfil the law of Christ.
sweet as a rose.
