(“I am the rose of Sharon, and the lily of the valleys.” Solomon 2:1)

A Shulamite woman is like a rose
Look at the flowers that blanket Sharon
A beautiful rose, perfect in every way
A picture for us to imagine

Jesus isn’t like a rose
Jesus is the rose
He is perfect in everyway
He gives us himself and not an image

Riding on the bus
Through this broad, sweet plain
Think of how Christ touched your heart
His saving work setting you free

Perfect in every way
Taking our imperfection away
The Rose of Sharon lives in us
Life in Christ is the key
