Symbol of The Rose

Stop and smell the roses
God gives us to enjoy
The symbol of his love to us
His mercy, peace and joy

A white one, oh, so beautiful
A saviour white as snow
A spotless, shameless, beautiful Lamb
Jesus loves me, this I know

And there's a pretty yellow one
A Christians duty, the gospel share
To tell the world of God's dear son
To sinners everywhere

But red's the best one of 'em all
A saviour came and died
He shed his precious blood for all
So we, his love could find

    It seems there is an aura around most of your poems. Thanks for your encouraging spirit. May the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob keep you always, in His love... Jake

    I really like this one! It shows the beauty of nature as well as the mercy of God. I just learned a few days ago that 'savior' refers to a man, whereas 'saviour' refers to God; something that is lost in modern English. I think it is fun to write with older words and spellings anyway; it seems to give things a dimention that is not commonly found.
