The Rose of Calvary

The image of a sacred flower, a divine rose, from heaven’s own garden blooming in the shadows of our world is a portrait of hope and comfort. When translated into music, it becomes a song that speaks to ours deepest needs for restoration and redemption. It sings to us of a garden lost to sin and despair. It reveals to us a lonely garden where ancient olive trees stand silent witness to the suffering of the Savior. It sings of a garden meant for death suddenly springing to life in a shower of joyful alleluias. It is God’s tender love song reminding us all that we are children of the garden. Finally, at it’s heart, it is the music of one truly perfect Rose who choosing grace, dead for His beloved thorns.
