ROSES IN SONG .5.

Roses in Song 5

THE ROSE OF NO MAN’S LAND   William Thomas

The song was written as a tribute to the work of Red Cross nurses who served during the First World War, often under dangerous conditions.

I've seen some beautiful flowers Grow in my garden fair, I've spent some wonderful hours Lost in their fragrance rare. But I have found another Wondrous beyond compare.

There's a rose that grows on no-man's land And it's wonderful to see; Though its place is there it will live for me In my garden of memories.

It's the one red rose the soldier knows It's the work of the Master's hand, It's the sweet word from the Red Cross nurse, She's the rose of no-man's land.
