Hymn for St Rose's Day
by Sr Anna Mary House
He is a gardener, and in his garden grows
Of ev'ry kind both fruits and flowers,
Warmed by his sun, refreshed with showers,
And there a fragrant lily blows
And here there springs a perfect rose.
She is a gardener, and to her work she goes
To learn with Jesus by her side -
Living His life, herself denied -
And grace implanted thrives and grows
Till she becomes a perfect Rose.
