UNFOLDING THE ROSEBUD
.
       It is only a tiny rosebud,
       A flower of GOD's design;
       But I cannot unfold its 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 along my 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.
