10. The Roses

Share The Well
by Caedmon's Call



 

High above the valley of Quito
An old man and his bride grow roses
Red and yellow, white and golden,
To him they are precious as children
Their daughter, she moved to America
One more break in the Tower of Babel
She has a son that they've never seen at all
They're praying that they raised her well

On the mountain high
They will live and die
As time just slips away
And the children grow
In the God they know
As time just slips away

A man, his bride, his children, and his roses
Planted in faith
And watered in tears
Honey, that's all they have
And they're happier here
Than any of my friends back home
They met Jesus and they really know Him

Now I'm back at home
All alone
And I'm trying to find my thoughts
Of that old man so inspiring
And the TV's always on
And the phone, it won't stop ringing
These bills, they keep on screaming
I'm paying for the things
We never really need

Wonder what he's doing right now?
Maybe walking through his simple field
Thinking about how
God has blessed him so

A man, his bride, his children, and his roses

words and music by Andrew Osenga and Jeff Miller

Behind the Song:
"Ecuador is covered in roses. They're everywhere. I brought home 100 for my wife and it cost me 8 bucks. We also met so many wonderful and inspiring people there, who were so loving and free, even in their poverty. I wanted to place a character on that mountain, show how full of love he was for his family, his God, even his flowers, and contrast that with myself and friends back home who have so much more, but are surely not as content or happy. It was humbling and very encouraging to learn from these people." - Andrew Osenga (Caedmon's Call)
