Lyrics for God's Winter Rose

Post by Marilyn » Fri May 20, 2022 2:33 pm

I'm searching for the Lyrics to a song I heard several years ago. I was told the person who originally did this one was Dotty Rambo. It's called "God's Winter Rose". One line in the song is "Walk through the garden of my heart Lord."

Found this one by Dottie: Has the line you were looking for and mentions roses.

The Garden Of My Heart
Writer: Dottie Rambo

Intro
WALK THROUGH THE GARDEN OF MY HEART

Verse 1
YOU MADE MY HEART A GARDEN FILLED WITH FLOWERS
AND THE GREEN GRASS LIKE A CARPET
KISSED BY THE MORNING DEW
YOU BLESSED THE SEEDS OF LOVE I SOW
WARMED MY HEART SO THEY COULD GROW
NOW SHELTER ME IN YOUR ARMS LORD
‘CAUSE A STORM IS PASSIN’ THROUGH

Chorus
WALK THROUGH THE GARDEN OF MY HEART
CALM THE STORM LORD
LEST THE PRETTY ROSES FAIL TO BLOOM AGAIN
MAKE THE RAGING WIND A GENTLE BREEZE
LET ME FEEL YOUR SUNSHINE PLEASE, LORD
WALK THROUGH THE GARDEN OF MY HEART

Verse 2
I CAN BRING THE WATER TO THE ROSES
AND PLANT THE SEEDS OF KINDNESS
SO THE BITTER WEEDS CAN’T GROW
BUT I CAN’T CAUSE THE RAIN TO FALL
ON THE DRY AND THIRSTY SOIL
AND I CAN’T CALM THE STORM OF LIFE
OR THE ANGRY WINDS THAT BLOW

Repeat Chorus

Tag
MAKE THE RAGING WIND A GENTLE BREEZE
LET ME FEEL YOUR SUNSHINE PLEASE LORD
WALK THROUGH THE GARDEN OF MY HEART

Also found this one from a Cantata of the same name
Song starts at 2:20 of this video

Not by Dottie - although she may have sung it.

The Winter Rose
Joseph Martin

In the silence of the winter,
while stars shown high above,
God sent from heaven's garden,
a rose to show His love.
It opened in the dark of night,
While the world was fast asleep.
So perfect was its beauty,
It made the heavens weep.
The angels paused to wonder,
Upon that winsome sight.
And kings and shepherds gathered
To worship in its light.
They all breathed in its beauty,
A precious sweet perfume.
And in the bleak midwinter
The Rose began to bloom.
O let us now remember
When God put on the thorn.
And Love restored the garden
And the Winter Rose was born.
Oh, Love restored the garden
And the Winter Rose was born.

Dottie's The Perfect Rose: No mention of a garden here.

https://youtu.be/IBEhMetAIo8

The Perfect Rose
Writers: Dottie Rambo, Dony McGuire

Verse 1
IN A CORNER ON A TABLE ON A SPREAD OF IVORY LACE
FRAMED AND KISSED BY PASTEL COLORS
DANCING THRU THE CRYSTAL VASE
SCARLET RED ITS PETALS, OPENED IN FULL BLOOM
TAKING NOTHING BUT THE SUNSHINE
LEAVING FRAGRANCE IN THE ROOM

Chorus 1
HANDS REACHED OUT WITHOUT A REASON
CRUSHED AND BRUISED THE PETALS SO
CAUSING YET A SWEETER FRAGRANCE
FROM THE WEEPING, DYING ROSE
LYING IN NOW IN RUIN TO WITHER
SCATTERED NOW BY CARELESS HANDS
ONCE AN ART OF PERFECT BEAUTY
DIES TO NEVER BLOOM AGAIN

Verse 2
IN A CORNER OF A STABLE ON A SPREAD OF SWADDLING CLOTHES
JUST A TINY BUD, BUT DESTINED
TO BECOME THE PERFECT ROSE
ANGELS HAILED HIS ENTRANCE, WISE MEN BROUGHT HIM GOLD
KNOWING LITTLE OF THE SUFF’RING
THAT WOULD SOON BEFALL THE ROSE

Chorus 2
HANDS REACHED OUT WITHOUT A REASON
CRUSHED AND BRUISED THE PERFECT ROSE
CAUSING YET A SWEETER FRAGRANCE
AS THE CRIMSON COLOR FLOWED
UGLY THORNS HAD NEVER MARRED IT
‘TIL A CROWN OF THORNS HE WORE
TASTING DEATH THE ROSE OF SHARON

ROSE TO BLOOM FOREVER MORE
ROSE TO BLOOM FOREVER MORE
ROSE TO BLOOM FOREVER MORE
ROSE TO BLOOM FOREVER MORE
