1Flowers from His own gardens,
To the children’s King,
To the dear Lord Jesus,
We His children bring.
He is Lord of nature,
As the Lord of grace,
All His own the blossoms
Of each pleasant place.
Flowers from His own gardens,
To the children’s King,
To the dear Lord Jesus,
We His children bring.
2Offerings of thanksgiving,
For the sweet and fair
In the world about us,
Scattered everywhere;
For the things of beauty
Springing in our ways,
And the many pleasures
Of our happy days;
3In this world of brightness
Jesus grieved and died,
Where there was a garden
He was crucified.
Better flowers are blowing
Where His life-blood ran,
Plants of hope and glory
He has given to man.
4In our sinful nature
Christ was crucified;
May our hearts be gardens
Where He may abide.
Let us give Him lilies
Grown with patience there;
Love and trust and pureness
Are the blooms most fair.
5Master of the gardens,
At Thy wounded Feet,
In Thy house, we lay them,
These our offerings meet.
To Thyself we send them,
In the darkened room
Of Thy sick and needy,
Where no bright things bloom.
6Once this earth was Eden,
Sin, that Jesus slew,
Spoiled its happy beauty,
Thorns and thistles grew.
But where He was buried
Now is Paradise:–
Lead us thither, Father,
Till beyond the skies. Amen.
Song of Songs2:12The flowers appear on the earth; the time of the singing of birds is come, and the voice of the turtle is heard in our land;
