Flower Carol – Hymn Lyric
Spring has now unwrapped the flowers,
day is fast reviving,
Life in all her growing powers
towards the light is striving:
Gone the iron touch of cold,
winter time and frost time,
Seedlings, working through the mould,
now make up for lost time.
Herb and plant that, winter long,
slumbered at their leisure,
Now bestirring, green and strong,
find in growth their pleasure;
All the world with beauty fills,
gold the green enhancing,
Flowers make glee among the hills,
set the meadows dancing.
Through each wonder of fair days
God Himself expresses;
Beauty follows all His ways,
as the world He blesses:
So, as He renews the earth,
Artist without rival,
In His grace of glad new birth
we must seek revival.
Earth puts on her dress of glee;
flowers and grasses hide her;
We go forth in charity
brothers all beside her;
For, as man this glory sees
in th’awakening season,
Reason learns the heart’s decrees,
hearts are led by reason.
Praise the Maker, all ye saints;
He with glory girt you,
He Who skies and meadows paints
fashioned all your virtue;
Praise Him, seers, heroes, kings,
heralds of perfection;
Brothers, praise Him, for He brings
all to resurrection!
Meaning of Flower Carol
The Beauty of Spring: A Flower Carol
As the chill of winter slowly fades away, and the days grow longer, we can’t help but feel the excitement and joy that spring brings. The hymn “Flower Carol” beautifully depicts this transformation, reminding us of the wonders of nature and the renewing power of the seasons.
Spring is a time of rebirth and growth, where nature awakens from its slumber. The verse in the hymn speaks of the flowers that have now begun to bloom, reaching towards the light as life pulsates through their stems. The harsh grip of winter has been replaced by the gentle touch of spring, allowing the seedlings to make up for lost time. They push through the soil, eager to show the world their vibrant colors and delicate petals.
Just like the plants and herbs that have patiently waited for their turn, we too can find inspiration in their growth. The hymn encourages us to bestir ourselves, to find our own purpose and pleasure in pursuing personal growth. Just as the world becomes a canvas for beauty, each of us has the opportunity to express our own unique beauty through our actions and deeds.
The imagery of flowers making the world glee and setting the meadows dancing fills our hearts with joy. Spring is a time when the world comes alive with vibrant colors and sweet scents. We witness the wonders of God’s creation as each flower unfurls and each blade of grass stretches towards the sun. It is a reminder that beauty surrounds us, and that we have the power to bring beauty into the lives of others as well.
In the hymn, the splendor of spring serves as a metaphor for the grace and blessings that God bestows upon us. It reminds us that just as God renews the earth each year, we too can seek revival and renewal in our own lives. We can shed the weight of past mistakes and embrace the opportunity for growth and change.
As we observe the earth putting on her dress of glee, we are reminded of the importance of charity and brotherhood. The hymn speaks of going forth in charity, emphasizing the unity and kindness that we should extend to one another. It reminds us that we are all part of the same world and that by working together and supporting each other, we can create a more beautiful and harmonious existence.
The hymn also acknowledges that as humans, we have been blessed with reason. As we witness the wonders of spring, it is not merely a visual experience, but also an opportunity for introspection. Spring teaches us that reason and heart can go hand in hand, guiding us towards making wise decisions and leading virtuous lives.
We are called to praise the Maker, the one who has painted the skies and meadows, and who has fashioned all our virtues. The hymn invites seers, heroes, and kings to join in this chorus of praise. It acknowledges that each of us, regardless of our station in life, has the ability to bring about positivity and change.
In the end, the hymn reminds us that spring is not just about the physical world coming to life, but also about the resurrection of our spirits. It is a time of renewal and rebirth, where we can shed the old and embrace the new. It is a time to celebrate and give thanks for the beauty that surrounds us and the potential that lies within us.
So, as spring unfolds before us, let us remember the lessons found in the Flower Carol. Let us seek revival in our own lives, embrace the beauty of the world, and extend kindness and charity to our fellow humans. In doing so, we can become agents of positive change and experience the joy and renewal that spring offers us each year.
