THE ROSE THAT STANDS THE TALLEST

IS THE ROSE THAT STANDS ALONE

THERE IS ONE ROSE THAT STANDS ABOVE ALL OTHERS…

HE’S THE ONLY ROSE WHOSE SWEET SCENT IS NEVER LOST…

HE WAS CRUSHED AND MADE THE PERFECT ONE THAT COVERS…

HE WAS THE ONLY ONE CHOSEN TO PAY MAN’S TOTAL COST…

YES, HE’S THE ROSE THAT STOOD ABOVE ALL OTHERS…

AS HE KNEALT IN THAT DARK GARDEN AMONG THE OLIVE TREES…

FOR HIS BLOOD ALONE WAS MADE OUR ETERNAL COVER…

AND COVERED ALL THE SINS THAT FATHER NOW NEVER SEES…

HIS TRUE NATURE WAS THE POWER THAT STOOD ABOVE ALL OTHERS…

ONLY HIS NAME COULD BRING THE ANGELS IN FULL ARRAY…

HE WAS SACRIFICED FOR ALL OF WE SONS AND DAUGHTERS…

HIS MIND WANTED TO RUN… BUT OBEDIENCE CAUSED HIM TO STAY…

HE KNEW THE PLAN OF HIS FATHER… THE ANSWER FOR ALL MEN…

IT WAS HIS YIELDING THAT BROUGHT FORTH TOTAL RESTITUTION…

ONLY ONE COULD DO THIS JOB OF REMOVING ALL MAN’S SIN…

NOW WE LIVE IN UNITY – FREE FROM FEAR AND CONDEMNATION…

SO WHEN CHALLENGES COME TO MOVE YOU FROM HIS PATH…

YOUR TICKET HAS ALREADY BEEN PURCHASED – YOU DON’T HAVE TO STRAY

BECAUSE THE ROSE THAT STANDS ABOVE ALL OTHERS…

WAS WILLING TO GIVE HIS LIFE – THAT YOUR RANSOM BE PAID…

HIS WAS A LONELY WALK – ONE TOTALLY MIS-UNDERSTOOD…

HE NEVER RECEIVED WORLDLY ACCEPTANCE FROM THOSE HE SO LOVED…

BUT EVEN AT THE END, HE WAS THE ONLY ROSE THAT STILL STOOD…

AND THE VALIDITY OF HIS WORK IS CONTINUALLY BEING PROVED…

NO OTHER MAN CAN MAKE THE CLAIMS THAT JESUS WALKED EACH DAY…

EVEN THOSE THAT CLAIM TO BE HIS SONS ARE STILL SEEKING MORE LIGHT…

BUT HIS WORK WAS OVER WHEN HE ALONE STOOD AS THE ROSE OF CLAY…

CRUSHED AND BLEEDING… BUT ALL DARKNESS DEFEATED… SON OF MIGHT…

REMEMBER IT IS IN THIS GREAT IMAGE THAT WE HAVE BEEN SHAPEN…

AND IT IS AS HE WALKED THAT WE ARE BEING EVER SO SURELY LED…

YET WE CAN DO NOTHING TO CAUSE HIS WILL AND PLAN TO HAPPEN…

EXCEPT HEAR HIM CLEARLY AND DO ALWAYS AND ONLY JUST WHAT HE SAID…

SO WHEN THE HEAT IS TURNED UP AND YOUR PETALS BEGIN TO WILT…

DRINK IN DEEPLY THE REFRESHING BREEZE HE BRINGS ALONG YOUR WAY…

AND SMELL THE SCENT OF HIS PRESENCE – FEEL THE FAITH HE BUILT…

AND SEE THE ROSE STANDING SO TALL – ABOVE ALL OBSTACLES IN YOUR DAY…

 

 

THE ROSE THAT STANDS THE TALLEST – IS THE ROSE THAT STANDS ALONE
