**(Update! I have fixed my www.purevolume.com playlist. It now includes "Where The Roses Never Fade" should you like to hear it.)**


(The following is a new song. It is dedicated to my grandma, Dorothy West, who is so very fond of telling me the story of how her daddy came to know the Lord. I've posted the song itself on PureVolume.com. It is available to listen to and share for free. The link is http://www.purevolume.com/GaryWest38788 You may need to wait for the site to update my playlist info.)





Where The Roses Never Fade
Words and Music By; Gary L. S. West


Verse 1
I remember the first time I saw your face
And how it lit up the sky
I remember my heart was an empty space
And all you said to me was, "Hi"
"How are you doing
So good to meet you
You look like you could use a friend"
So you sat down
And then we talked awhile
And then we finished with "Amen"


Chorus 1
I'd never before prayed
You told me my price was paid
You rose and shook my hand
After we said "Amen"
We'll meet again someday
Where the roses never fade


Verse 2
Now these days I sit and write about
The friend that came to me that day
And if I see someone that I can help out
I approach them and I say
"How are you doing?
So good to meet you
If you could spare a little time
I have a story
That could change your life
Just the same as it did mine"


Chorus 2
And if you have never prayed
You need to know your price is paid
Rise up and take my hand
We'll pray and say "Amen"
We'll meet again someday
Where the roses never fade
