Verse 1
I planted a little rose bush,
I tended it with care,
It's buds began to blossom
Their fragrance filled the air
But when winter came it withered,
The petals drooped and fell to the ground,
My heart sank as it faded,
But I'd forgotten who had made it.

CHORUS
Roses will bloom again,
Just wait and see
Don't mourn what might have been
Only God knows how and when that
Roses will bloom again.

VERSE 2
Rose was his only sweetheart,
A loving wife for forty years.
Cherished every day they had,
And held memories oh so dear
He never dreamed he's bore love
And go to live alone,
But he lay his Rose to rest,
Looked up to heaven and tried his best
To believe that

CHORUS

MUSICAL INTERLUDE

VERSE 3
The precious Rose of Sharon,
Broken and bruised in cruel shame,
Stained on the cross of Calvary,
So that men might be saved,
Oh, Satan cheered as He died,
While Mary and the others cried,
Then God raised Him up from that sleep
And kept a promise only He could keep.

CHORUS

    The lyrics of this song are so meaningful to my situation now. I am deals with a Long Distance Love relationship. I have a relationship with this guy since 2009 until we broke up around 2011, because he moved to New Zealand for good. Since when I got this song from one of my christian best friend, I don't wanna loose it again.
    So, Roses will bloom again. Means to me, Don't worry for any future, God is a God of promises.

    I was going through a very rough time. I had two rose bushes that hadn't bloomed in two years. I walked outside one day praying and noticed a rose blooming. Then i heard a voice say" roses will bloom again" and immediately felt the lord there with me. So this is my special song from him
