BECAUSE YOU LIVE AGAIN, O ROSE


1 Because you live again, O Rose
Who bloomed in Guadalupe's snows,
In this your image, flow'ring fair,
Our songs as flowers fill the air.
2 O Virgin, Rose in brambles grown,
Who chose this people for your own
Your flow'ring image glorifies
The tangled brushwood of our lives.
3 God made you lovely past compare,
Your life was one unfolding prayer;
And then He fashioned you again,
An image which He gave to men.
4 We pray, protect us as your own
And intercede at Heaven's throne;
While here we kneel before your face,
Send down a ray of saving grace.
