Hymn/Song Information

Here Lord we offer Thee All that is fair




Here, Lord, we offer Thee
all that is fairest,
Bloom from the garden,
and flowers from the field;
Gifts for the stricken ones,
knowing Thou carest
More for the love than
the wealth that we yield.


Send, Lord, by these
to the sick and the dying,
Speak to their hearts
with a message of peace;
Comfort the sad, who
in weakness are lying,
Grant the departing a gentle release.


Raise, Lord, to health
those again who have sickened,
Fair be their lives as
the roses in bloom;
Give of Thy grace to
the souls Thou hast quickened,
Gladness for sorrow,
and brightness for gloom.


We, Lord, like flowers,
must bloom and must wither;
We, like these blooms,
must fade and must die;
Gather us, Lord, to
Thy bosom forever,
Grant us a place in
Thy house in the sky.
