Lyrics

COURAGE GROWS LIKE A ROSE


VERSE Was down in the dumps, bad part of town
wandered to a bar to put a few down.
Didn't have the money to pay the rent,
sank my head in my hands in discouragement

A man shuffled in from his home on the street
His old face was lined, his clothes torn and beat.
sat down beside me, to my surprise
when he saw my despair he said with kindly eyes:

CHORUS Take heart, young man, pain will make you strong.
COURAGE GROWS LIKE A ROSE
Thorn on thorn it is born.
Don't cry, don't run,
face your problems one by one.
COURAGE GROWS LIKE A ROSE,
thorn on thorn it is born.

VERSE He said, some must work and some have leisure
But all feel pain and all want pleasure.
Hold your head high, put a smile on your face
You may be poor, but rich in sweet grace

CHORUS Take heart, young man, pain will make you strong.
COURAGE GROWS LIKE A ROSE
Thorn on thorn it is born.
Don't cry, don't run
face your problems one by one.
COURAGE GROWS LIKE A ROSE,
thorn on thorn it is born.

VERSE After he left I went out to a park
watched the city getting light and the sky getting dark.
I felt a kind of freedom that I'd missed for so long,
his words in my soul like a long-lost song.

CHORUS Take heart, young man, oh pain will make you strong.
COURAGE GROWS LIKE A ROSE
Thorn on thorn it is born.
Don't cry, don't run
face your problems one by one.
COURAGE GROWS LIKE A ROSE,
thorn on thorn it is born.

COURAGE GROWS LIKE A ROSE

Yes it does
um um
