This rose video reminds me of how we yield to Jesus. It’s a slow process. We gradually grow into His personality. Notice the pause in the time lapse with partial opening, then the final exhale of a fully exposed, laid-down life.
Joyful, joyful, we adore Thee,
- God of glory, Lord of love;
Hearts unfold like flow’rs before Thee,
Op’ning to the sun above.
Melt the clouds of sin and sadness;
Drive the dark of doubt away;
Giver of immortal gladness,
Fill us with the light of day!
