O God, ten thou-sand flowers

To thee sweet offerings bear,

And cheerful birds in sha-dy bowers,

And cheerful birds in sha-dy bowers,

Sing forth thy ten-der care,

Sing forth thy ten-der care.

These living hearts of ours

Thy holy name would bless;

The blossom of ten thousand flowers

Would please the Saviour less.

While earth itself decays,

Our souls can never die;

O tune them all to sing thy praise

In better songs on high.
