Garden Glories


Tune: Newington

(one tune to 'Thine for ever, God of love')


Copious shower, sun's spell

You do weather our souls well

Tend to drought, desert dryness

You do refresh us, us bless


Soul, draw near, and here commune

With your Lord, with Him in tune

With His Spirit abiding

Ever in you residing


You Lord are the husbandman

Working as only you can

In our soul's garden to bring

All to your glory, each thing


Fragrant flowers, colourful

Green trees, bushes, strong and tall

Fruitful plants, they shall us nourish

You the land do bless, cherish


So taking our part, may we

Produce good fruit, you it see

Patient endure pruning's time

Then bear more fresh fruit sublime
