There was once a beautiful orchid
Who lived in the garden of love
This orchid was so special
It glowed for heaven above
God had an angel standing guard
People asked God if it could be theirs alone
He said, "Only if someone is pure of heart
Would I let it be their own
Many came and went
The angel did not let them close to view
So I came to hear of it
I wondered if God would let me through
When I came to this garden of love
All was as people said
I was just a humble girl
Would God give it to me instead
I saw the angel dressed in beautiful gold
I looked at the orchid with longing
Hoping to smell it's folds
"I have been waiting for you"
God's voice came from up above
"The orchid is yours for the taking
Given with all my love"
I asked, Dear God,
You have been guarding it for so long
Why do you give it to me
I am not even very strong"
The angel smiled, "My Daughter, you are special.
You have been so all your life
You help others first
You always share my loving light
Your heart is pure like the falling snow
So special in God's love
He put this orchid here
So it would not lose it's glow
I, myself have watched you
And seem how you grow
So you may take this flower
From God's loving care
You are a blossom yourself
You are so very rare"
