[Intro]
Dm       Bb       F        C     (repeat)

Dm        Bb
lost in a windswept land

F             C
in a world of shifting sand

Dm        Bb            F       C
a fragile flower stands apart

Dm                Bb
and there in that barren ground

F                        C
you feel like you're the only one

Dm        Bb                      F      C
trying to serve Him with all your heart

        Dm      Bb     F                 C
and you wonder, wonder can you last much longer

Dm                 Bb
this cloud you are under

F             C
will it cover you


[Chorus]

       Dm           Bb
desert rose, desert rose

          F               C
don't you worry, don't be lonely

       Dm            Bb
heaven knows, heaven knows

     F             C
in a dry and weary land

         Bb
a flower grows

           F     C   Bb
His desert rose

       Dm     Bb     F      C
desert rose



Dm        Bb
sometimes holiness

F             C
can seem like emptiness

Dm                Bb                     F       C
when you feel the whole world's laughing eyes

Dm            Bb
but if it's a lonely day

F                  C
know you're on the Father's way

Dm      Bb                F    C
He will hear you when you cry

            Dm        Bb
and He will hold you, hold you

F                C
your Father will hold you

Dm                Bb
He will love you, love you

F                  C
for the things you do

[Repeat chorus]
