WHEN YOU LOOK IN THE HEART OF A ROSE
(Words by Marian Gillespie / Music by Florence Methven, 1918)
Deep in my heart I hold for you, A tender thought, so sweet and true,
Nobody knows but this little rose, I give you.
I give my love sweetheart to you, Hid in a rose, so safe, secure,
Trusting you'll know, for ever and aye, 'Twill endure.
Dear little rose, with your heart of gold, Dear little rose, may
your petals fold, My secret sweet I will trust you to keep,
Deep in your heart 'twill repose. No one will know what your
leaves conceal, No one will guess what they could reveal,
You will know then, that I love you dear, When you look in the
heart of a rose.
