Red Rose Flower
Red roses convey thoughts of courage and congratulations
If any little word of ours,
Can make one life the brighter;
If any little song of ours
Can make one heart the lighter;
God help us speak that little word,
And take our bit of singing,
And drop it in some lonely vale
To set the echoes ringing.
