Story

Years ago a good friend of mine had breast cancer, and little while later my mom was diagnosed also.  Watching both of these women, who I love and respect so much go through this made me ask some questions.  Seeing how they handled it made me stronger.  I do believe no matter how things look, god is always in charge.

Lyrics

Just a Little Mustard Seed


Verse 1:                 
I may not control how the rivers flow,
And why bad things happen to such good people,
I don't know.
But I've got a friend who stands by me,
And what He says, I believe.

Chorus:             
All I need is just a little mustard seed of faith,
And it'll move a mountain of trouble out of my way.
When I feel there's no reason to bother,
I look to the Man who walked on water,
And all I need is just a little mustard seed.

Verse 2:               
You may not be able to see the other side,
When that wall of despair you're lookin' upon seems
Ten miles high.
But you've got a friend, with arms open wide,
And He will lift you up to the sky.

Chorus: All you need...

Bridge:                 
When we're lookin' out on a cloudy day,
We must remember the Saviour promised to
Return that way.

Chorus: And all we need...

Tag: All we need is just a little mustard seed.

Story

My dad (Winston Burkett) visited a friend who had a grandson with Down Syndrome and he referred to him a "Blue Rose".  When my dad asked why, he said because he was like a rare flower that needed special care.  Later my dad wrote a fictional novel about a the relationship between a young girl with autism and her grandfather, set back in the 1940's.  Of course he pulled a lot from his personal experience with his grandaughter, Morgan. 

When I read it, I was very touched and asked if we could write a song from the book idea.  He agreed, and that's how "Blue Rose" was born. 

Lyrics

BLUE ROSE

 VERSE 1:                 

HE CALLS HER BLUE ROSE,

HE IS HER OLD SILVER HAIR.

EACH DAY THEY GO WALKIN'

WITH HIS CAIN AND HER TEDDY BEAR.

AND ALTHOUGH SHE SELDOM EVER SPEAKS A WORD,

DEEP INSIDE HIS HEART SOMEHOW THEY'RE HEARD.

 

CHORUS:            

FOR EVERY HOPE, EVERY PRAYER,

LOVE IS ALWAYS THERE,

TO FILL THE NEED, IN GOD'S SPEED.

 

VERSE 2:                

HE'LL TELL YOU BLUE ROSES

ARE VERY RARE.

IF YOU'RE PICKED TO HAVE ONE,

YOU KNOW THEY TAKE SPECIAL CARE.

AND THE BLESSINGS THEY WILL BRING YOU IN RETURN,

ARE MANY MORE THAN ANYONE CAN EVER EARN.

 

CHORUS:                 

FOR EVERY HOPE, EVERY PRAYER,

LOVE IS ALWAYS THERE,

TO FILL THE NEED,  IN GOD'S SPEED.

 

BRIDGE:

SOMETIMES A FLOWER BLOSSOMS OUT OF SEASON.

PATIENTLY HE WAITS FOR WHAT HE KNOWS.

GOD HAS SENT HIS ROSE HERE FOR A REASON

SO THE WORLD WILL BE AMAZED AT HOW IT GROWS.

 

CHORUS:                 

FOR EVERY HOPE, EVERY PRAYER,

LOVE IS ALWAYS THERE,

TO FILL THE NEED,  IN GOD'S SPEED.

 

TAG:

HE CALLS HER BLUE ROSE

HE IS HER OLD SILVER HAIR.

EACH DAY THEY GO WALKIN'

WITH HIS CAIN AND HER TEDDY BEAR.
