The Rose rose

By Pastor Darryl L. Brown

It is only a tiny rosebud.. 
     A flower of God's design; 
But I cannot unfold the petals 
     With these clumsy hands of mine.

The secret of unfolding flowers 
     Is not known to such as I-- 
The flower God opens so sweetly 
     In my hands would fade and die.

If I cannot unfold a rosebud 
     This flower of God's design, 
Then how can I think I have wisdom 
     To unfold this life of mine?

So I'll trust Him for His leading 
     Each moment of everyday, 
And I'll look to Him for His guidance 
     Each step of the pilgrim way.

For the pathway that lies before me 
     My Heavenly Father knows-- 
I'll trust Him to unfold the moments 
     Just as He unfolds the rose.
