Cherokee Rose

Where every mothers tears fall
Let your faith and love grow there
A white rose grows for each drop
Turning your trail of tears into prayer

Pleasing the aroma of trust and grace
Pure gold, is the center of your love
Tender the leaves that cradle the bloom
Lovely white petals, pure as the Dove

The Lord cherishes the comely blossom
The tender chute that grows of Thee
Thy Word , our protection in the thorns
Wondrous, breathtaking, all born of He

Grown in strength that cannot be moved
Cherokee Rose , the beautiful flower
Weep no more, mothers of the homeland
Jesus, holds us all with His love and power

Sheltered Are The Tears

The sadness and tears that fell
Went no further than my heart
I asked Someone to live there
Born of the Spirit sets me apart

Blessed the soul that trusts God
The willingness to love and obey
Casting away sin in Light of cross
To be begotten by Him is the way

Desiring to live by all that He is
Washing away of all that is vile
By the shedding of His blood
Dying for us without any guile

Sheltered are these tears of mine
He’s not far from the thoughts
That take form in the far reaches
Jesus holds the heart,  He bought
