The Rose

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 the wisdom
To unfold this life of mine?

So I'll trust in Him for His leading
Each moment of everyday
I'll look to Him for guidance
Each stop 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

Ezekiel 34:11-12,16

"For thus saith the Lord God; Behold, I, even I, will both search my sheep, and seek them out. As a shepherd seeketh out his flock in the day that he is among his sheep that are scattered; so will I seek out my sheep, and will deliver them out of all places where they have been scattered in the cloudy and dark day. I will seek that which was lost, and bring again that which was driven away, and will bind up that which was broken, and will strengthen that which was sick"
