Roses are blooming everywhere
There are beautiful gardens, golden stairs
Trees of every sort and design
All that you ever wanted you find
Right here in God's Heaven - I'm certain that He
Designed all this beauty, so that all could see
How wondrous His Mercies and Goodness extends
To all who would seek Him - He calls us all Friends
And He makes a Place where we truly know
That God is within us - and one day, we'll go
Back to all this beauty, surrounded by Him
Where there is no heartache, suffering or sin
We find all the blessings not known to man
He crowns us with Glory - This Great One - 'I AM'
So please don't be saddened, despondent or grim
For ROSES ARE BLOOMING - And I dwell with HIM.....
