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.     

To Praise, To Bless, To Preach.
