ROSE OF SHARON (music and lyrics by Eliza Gilkyson)

I am a Rose of Sharon
A lily of the valley
As a lily grows among the thorns
Love in this world has found me

As an apple tree among the trees
That grows deep in the forest
My lover’s form is comely
With life and limb most joyous

Rise up my love and come away
The rain is over and gone
Your love is the fruit of my darkest day
And I am your Rose of Sharon

His gentle hand lies under my head
His shoulders turn to face me
I shall not stir him from my bed
While he doth so embrace me

Oh bring me wine to pass the time
Though none but him can soothe me
I am my beloved’s and he is mine
Desire for his pleasure moves me

Rise up my love and come away
The rain is over and gone
Your love is the fruit of my darkest day
And I am your Rose of Sharon
