O Rose of Bethlehem
How lovely pure and sweet
Born to glorify the Father
Born to wear the thorns for me
Verse 1
There's a Rose in Bethlehem
With a beauty quite divine
Perfect in this world of sin
On this silent holy night
There's a Fragrance much like hope
That It sends upon the wind
Reaching out to ev'ry soul
From a lowly manger's crib
Verse 2
There's a Rose in Bethlehem
Colored red like Mercy's Blood
'Tis the Flower of our faith
'Tis the Blossom of God's Love
Though Its Bloom is fresh with youth
Surely what will be He knows
For a tear of morning dew
Is rolling down the rose
