    ROSE OF SHARON
    (Eliza Gilkyson)

    I am a rose of Sharon
    A lily of the valley
    As a lily grown among the thorns
    Love in this world has found me
    As an apple tree among the trees
    That grow deep in the forest
    My lover's form in comely
    With life and limb most joyous

    Rise up my love and come away
    The rain is over and gone
    Your love is the fruit of my darkest day
    And I am your Rose of Sharon

    His gentle hand lies under my head
    His shoulders turn to face me
    I shall not stir him from my bed
    While he doth so embrace me
    Oh bring me wine to pass the time
    Though none but him can soothe me
    I am my beloved's and he is mine
    Desire for his pleasure moves me

    Rise up my love and come away
    The rain is over and gone
    Your love is the fruit of my darkest day
    And I am your Rose of Sharon
