With Loving Hearts O Lord We Bring

With loving hearts, O Lord, we bring
The fragrant incense of the flowers,
And on the altar of our King
We consecrate our noblest powers.

The lily’s pure and simple dress,
The daisy’s innocence so fair,
Are emblems of Thy holiness,
The sweet reminders of Thy care.

The birds Thy matchless glory sing,
The fields are white with waving corn,
The breezes heavenly incense bring
From all the fertile valleys borne.

The earth is breathing back to thee
The odours of the perfect flowers;
May all our lives as fruitful be
Amid the sunshine and the showers.

Thy gracious power on us bestow
To do Thy will and love Thy word,
Till we in fuller measure show
The joy and beauty of the Lord.
