Hymn/Song Information

The morning flowers display their sweets And gay




The morning flowers display their sweets,
And gay their silken leaves unfold
|: As careless of the noontide heats,
And fearless of the evening cold. :|


Nipped by the wind's unkindly blast,
Parched by the sun's directer ray,
|: The momentary glories waste,
The short-lived beauties die away. :|


So blooms the human face divine,
When youth its pride of beauty shows;
|: Fairer than spring the colours shine,
And sweeter than the virgin rose. :|


But worn by slowly-rolling years,
Or broke by sickness in a day,
|: The fading glory disappears,
The short-lived beauties die away. :|


Yet these, new rising from the tomb,
With lustre brighter far shall shine;
|: Revive with ever-during bloom,
Safe from diseases and decline. :|


Let sickness blast, let death devour,
If heaven must recompense our pains:
|: Perish the grass, and fade the flower,
If firm the word of God remains. :|
