A Little Rosebud bloomed one day
Its fragrance filled the air.
And all that passed along the way
Was happy to see it there.
But storms would come and winds would blow
And the trample of many feet
So a strong and loving hand, one day
Plucked this flower so fair and sweet.
And planted it in a sheltered nook
Away from the busy throng
Where only the rain drops found their way
And the sun shown all day long.
And thus our Babe like the flower
His stay on earth was brief.
His presence filled our hearts with joy
His passing gave us grief.
But our flower was far to precious
To battle the storms of life.
So God took him to bloom in heaven,
Where he never knew sorrow or strife.
