Septimus Winner, 1861

If in this world there is a flow'r
To me more lovely than the rest,
It is the rose the pale white rose
The snow-white rose I love the best.
Chorus:
But why this flow'r so dear to me?
Why to my heart such pleasure send?
Because it was the fond gift
Of one who ever is my friend,
Because it was the fond gift
Of one who ever is my friend.
2. And now when spring is on her way,
When flow'rs with their perfume abound,
I seek the grove and love to dwell
Where-e'er the snow-white rose is found.
Chorus:

3. What-e'er my heart may learn to prize
'Till life shall meet its certain close;
I know I ne'er shall cease to love
The beauty of the snow-white rose.
For oh, this flow'r so dear to me
So sweet, so fair to view,
I love because it was the gift
Of one whose heart is ever true,
I love because it was the gift
Of one whose heart is ever true.
