1 What is sweeter, tell me,
Than a pretty rose?
Fragrant in its beauty,
Loveliest flow’r that grows.

Refrain:
Rose, rose, rose,
Prettiest flow’r that grows,
Emblem of love that came from Heaven,
Thro' which a Savior, Christ, was given;
Rose, rose, rose,
Not till the whole world knows
Of my dear Savior King,
Will I cease to sing,
Sweet rose, rose, rose.

2 If a rose could whisper,
Could it, think you, tell
Of that blessed country
Where the angels dwell? [Refrain]

3 Jesus, keep me ever
Like unto this flow’r—
Pure and sweet and modest,
Every day and hour. [Refrain]
