Unfolding the Rosebud




It is only a tiny rosebud, 
A flower of God's design; 
But I cannot unfold the petals 
With these clumsy hands of mine.

The secret of unfolding flowers 
Is not known to such as I. 
God opens this flower so sweetly, 
When in my hands they fade and die.

If I cannot unfold a rosebud, 
This flower of God's design, 
Then how can I think I have wisdom 
To unfold this life of mine? 

So, I'll trust in Him for His leading 
Each moment of every day. 
I will look to Him for His guidance 
Each step of the pilgrim way. 

The pathway that lies before me, 
Only my heavenly Father knows. 
I'll trust Him to unfold the moments, 
Just as He unfolds the rose.
