SATB and Keyboard. An easy arrangement of this little-known tune from Kentucky Harmony. Rich with imagery, this anthem is perfect for summer choirs (or even a Lessons and Carols service.)
The Lord into his garden comes,
the spices yield a rich perfume,
The lilies grow and thrive,
the lilies grow and thrive.
Refreshing show'rs of grace divine
from Jesus flow to ev'ry vine,
And make the dead revive,
and make the dead revive.
Come, children, you who love the Lord,
Who taste the sweetness of his word,
In Jesus' word now live,
In Jesus' word now live!
Unfurling to the Light divine,
Let your leaves and blossoms intertwine,
Bearing fruit in Christian love,
bearing fruit in Christian love.
