There in a field sits a single flower,
its beauty outshines the purest rose.

For this flower is lovingly tended by God,
and to all who pass by His handiwork shows.

It is true that the flowers around her are full of earthly beauty,
but heaven is the source of the beauty that from her heart glows.

Her face shines so sweetly, and her smile so bright,
but even that dims in the glory her godly heart shows.

She is kind, loving, sweet, gentle, and thoughtful,
faithful, honest, and wise, a flower that in Jesus grows.
