RUBY ON THE ROSES

This world is full of timeless woes

Difficulties it’s circumstance poses

The thing that keeps me going–

—Is God’s Ruby on the Roses.

 

He made all creatures great and small

Hillsides where sheep do rest soft noses;

His Easter love surrounds us like a shroud

—Like Ruby on the Roses.

Soon I shall go to world’s above

As His door of Eternity closes;

The thing that keeps me going

—Is God’s Ruby on the Roses.
