Though thorns are sharp
And drops of blood are there,
Pick the bloom and smell the rose;
Observe its beauty rare.
Give praise to God and to His name;
Bow humbly as you mourn;
Look through rainbows of dew-dropped tears
In the dark times of the thorns.

Do you weep because of pain
And sorrow weighs you down?
Pick the rose and press it close,
And place it near the Crown.
Listen close as darkness falls
To that once echoed cry,
"Why do you forsake me, Father,
When I have to die?"

Is your journey through this world
A struggle day by day?
Pick the rose; its petals strew
Step by step along the way.
Bring into your memories' path
Burdens that once were borne
By the full atoning love
Of one crowned with your thorn.

Though thorns are sharp,
And drops of blood are there,
Seek the bloom and grasp the rose;
Observe its beauty rare.
Give praise to God and to His name;
Bow humbly as you mourn.
Seek then, the rainbows through your tears
In the dark times of the thorns.
