Dream of New Roses

rose_02_2MB

Holy servants walk in light, as He is light,
And dare to dream of new roses,
To gather the bulbs from the hills,
And plant them in the earth.

You are ignorant, as I am ignorant,
And I will not ignore you
Though you and I have failed to speak our loves:
What matters most is saving many lives.

What matters most is saving many lives.
What you love well remains, the rest is dross:
Time meets eternity upon the cross.
With work and vision we can forge a ring,
And set our hope on grace: of this I sing.
