Crushed Roses

cottage garden 9th April, 2013 017Roses oh! so beautiful
Roses oh! so sweet
Roses oh! so preciously laid
Laid at His bleeding feet

Roses crushed but beautiful
Roses bruised but sweet
Roses torn but preciously laid
Laid at His wounded feet

Roses oh! so beautiful
Roses full of beauty
Roses perfect in every way
Were scattered at His weary feet

Roses oh! so sweet
Roses full of glory
Roses the gift of perfection
Were scattered at His pier-ced feet

Yes, laid at the feet of the Saviour
Torn, bruised and crushed both were
But the fragrance so lovingly released
Covered lost love … and healed afar
