SATB and organ or piano. We do like a spring carol when the flowers are blooming! This is the traditional Dutch carol with a wonderful treatment. Your choir will love it... it's just delightful!
King Jesus hath a garden, full of divers flowers,
Where I go culling posies gay, all times and hours.
There naught is heard but Paradise bird,
Harp, dulcimer, lute,
With cymbal, trump and tymbal,
And the tender, soothing flute.
The Lily, white in blossom there, is Chastity:
The Violet, with sweet perfume, Humility.
The Crown Imperial bloometh too in yonder place,
'Tis Charity, of stock divine, the flower of grace.
Ah! Jesu Lord, my heal and weal, my bliss complete,
Make thou my heart thy garden-plot, fair, trim and neat.
