GOD'S FLOWER GARDEN
It's hard to lose the ones we love
To see them pass away
The sweetest and the kindest gone,
While others are left to stay.
But if we had a garden,
With roses fair and bright,
We'd often pick the loveliest
And think it to be right.
And so it is with Jesus,
In his heavenly garden here,
He often picks the fairest flower,
The one we love so dear.
The flowers that are picked by him
Will never fade away
We know they'll live forever
And we'll see them some sweet day. ~ The Des Moines (IA) Register Wed 4 May 2011.
