Hey everyone, I came across this song in preparation for our choir's Christmas presentation this year. The words are poetically astounding, and the music is beautiful. Thought I'd share it with you. In His Grip, joshua ROSE OF BETHLEHEM Lowell Alexander (C) 1992 Birdwing Music There's a Rose in Bethlehem with a beauty quite divine; Perfect in this world of sin, on this silent holy night. There's a fregrance, much like hope that it sends upon the wind; Reaching out to every soul from a lowly manger's crib. O Rose of Bethlehem, how lovely, pure and sweet; Born to glorify the Father, born to wear the thorns for me. There's a Rose in Bethlehem colored red like mercy's blood; 'Tis the flower of the faith, 'tis the blossom of God's love. Though its bloom is fresh with youth surely what will be He knows. For a tear of morning dew is rolling down the rose. O Rose of Bethlehem, how lovely, pure and sweet; Born to glorify the Father, born to wear the thorns for me.
