Where the Roses Never Fade, Mid-week Inspiration
I like to include songs in my stories. On page one of A Wedding for Julia you’ll read that Ada picked the song “Where the Roses Never Fade” for her husband’s funeral. Throughout the story, the roses growing outside her kitchen window are a constant reminder of his love and God’s faithfulness.
I WANTED to include the lyrics, but turns out it’s a tricky thing to do that in a novel. It can be done, but the paperwork is rather massive. So we decided to refer to the song rather than quote it.
Many of you have written me and said you remember this song. I thought that today I’d share it with everyone. So following is a video by a blue grass band.
And you can find the lyrics here. I have a small Amish hymnal, and this song was included in it. Do you have a favorite hymn/praise song?
