Lyrics

THE THORN SEEKS NOT TO PIERCE
Words and music by Buddy Comfort © 1976

The thorn seeks not to pierce.
The thorn seeks not to pierce
As the arrow from the drawn bow,
As the arrow from the drawn bow flies.
In anger,
In anger from fear’s fancy.

The rose.
The rose.
The rose a lotus grows.
With sweet perfume
With sweet perfume and healing hue.
A gift for all she grows.

The thorn seeks not to pierce.
The thorn seeks not to pierce
But meets the hand
Meets the hand that passes low
To take the rose
To pluck the rose
To have the rose for it’s own.

The thorn seeks not to pierce.
