The words are copyright, so cannot be reproduced here. A rough outline is:
1  There is a rose in the garden.
One rose with the beauty of three.
But it will pale beside one petal of my rose.
And I will send you roses faithfully.

I will spend my heaven doing good upon the earth.
I will send you showers of the rose.
I have spent my life time loving in my Little Way.
Follow me, o Children of the Rose!
Follow me, my Children of the Rose!

2  There are many saints in the heavens.
Saints to bring your soul to sanctity.
I am always here when you need me.
When you see a rose just think of me.

3  There is an angel beside you.
An angel to guard patiently.
Talk to your angel beside you.
We will keep your guardian company.

4  There is our God in His heaven.
One God in Three Person Deity,
There is a Little Way to virtue.
All God's children win eternity.
