GIVE ME THE ROSES WHILE I LIVE
WRITER R.H. CORNELIUS

1.Wonderful things of folks are said
When they have passed away
Roses adorn the narrow bed
Over the sleeping clay
Give me the roses while I live
Trying to cheer me on
Useless are flowers that you give
After the soul is gone

2.Folks are forgiven when they lie
Cold in their narrow bed
Let us forgive them 'ere they die
Now should the words be said
Give me the roses while I live
Trying to cheer me on
Useless are flowers that you give
After the soul is gone

3.Praises are heard not by the dead
Roses they cannot see
Let us not wait until souls have fled
Generous friends to be
Give me the roses while I live
Trying to cheer me on
Useless are flowers that you give
After the soul is gone

4.Let us not wait to do good deeds
Till they have passed away
Now is the time to sow good seeds
While here on earth we stay
Give me the roses while I live
Trying to cheer me on
Useless are flowers that you give
After the soul is gone


5.Kind words are useless when folks lie
Cold in a narrow bed
Don't wait till death to speak kind words
Now should the words be said.Give me the roses while I live
Trying to cheer me on
Useless are flowers that you give
After the soul is gone
