A rose will simply not exist
Without its row of thorns,
But its beauty and its sweet aroma
Every garden it adorns.
It’s symbolic of joy and wisdom
With a tremendous power too,
As it’s considered the queen of the garden
With a majesty to view.
Enduring passion is the trademark of red
Whilst humility and innocence the white;
The yellow rose depicts friendship and joy
Whilst the pink an appreciative delight.
A red and white that’s side by side
Portrays a message that’s symbolic;
It represents the crucifixion of Jesus Christ
And His resurrection, pure and holy.
Jesus walked amongst the thorns
As a recipient of scathing remarks,
Particularly from the Pharisees
With their piercing words so sharp.
Yet He was pure and so perfect
So humble and innocent too;
A pure rose that walked amongst us
With a fragrance lovely and true.
He possessed the beauty of wisdom
And reflected the Father’s power;
He’s our King of Kings, our Saviour and Lord
So required for this hour.
He endured the pain on the cross
As His passion was for our souls;
A humiliating and public death
But with a mission to uphold.
He wore the infamous crown of thorns
Our precious Jesus, our rose,
But He conquered the grave and rose again
Defeating all of His foes.
