Norma Jean Where The Roses Never Fade Lyrics

Last updated: 10/13/2011 11:00:00 AM

I am going to a city,
Where the streets with gold are laid,
Where the tree of life is blooming,
And the roses never fade.

Here they bloom but for a season;
Soon their beauty is decayed.
I am going to a city,
Where the roses never fade.

In this world we have our troubles,
Satan snares we must evade.
We'llbe free from all temptations,
Where the roses never fade.

Loved one's gone to be with Jesus,
In their robes of white arrayed.
They are waiting for my coming,
Where the roses never fade.

Here they bloom but for a season;
Soon their beauty is decayed.
I am going to a city,
Where the roses never fade.

O I am going to a city....
Where the roses never fade...

They add a verse in Pike County KY | Reviewer: Diane | 9/13/2007

I learned this verse, too, don't know if Metzgar wrote it or it was added later. It's what the first writer refers to when she wrote: We will brief from temptation

In this world we have our troubles
Satan's snares we must evade
We'll be free from all temptation
Where the roses never fade

Where The Roses Never Fade
I am going to a city
where the streets with gold are laid
where the tree of life is blooming
and the roses never fade

Here they bloom but for a season
soon their beauty is decayed
I am going to a city
where the roses never fade

Loved ones gone to be with Jesus
in their robes of white array
now are waiting for my coming
where the roses never fade

Here they bloom but for a season
soon their beauty is decayed
I am going to a city
where the roses never fade

where the roses never fade


Janie West Metzgar
"1929"


Jimmy Swaggart sang it some time ago on records and tapes. You might possibily get a copy from Jim Records or from Jimmy Swaggart Ministries.

Where the Roses never fade. | Reviewer: B Riley | 8/29/2005

Please send the entire lyrics to this song, if at all possible.
We want to use it for a Celebration of Life for our mother who is dying,
at the age of 92+.
Thanks for your assistance.
