Go ye to the woodlands

Representative Text

1 Go ye to the woodlands,
Search the forest o'er,
Bring of nature's treasures,
Open all her store;
Cull the brightest laurels,
Gather box and pine,
For the shrine of Jesus,
Wreathe immortal twine.

Carol, carol, carol,
O with voices gladsome,
Carol forth his praises,
Carol joyously!

2 Bring, O bring abundance,
Loving hearts and hands,
Make his house most glorious,
Where his altar stands;
See the Rose of Sharon,
Fairest of the fair,
Lily of the valleys,
Stand in beauty there. [Chorus]

3 Bring, O bring the off'ring,
Richer far than gold,
Of a heartfelt service,
With a love untold;
Bearing incense, wafted,
On the wings of praise,
Songs of loud hosannas,
In his temple raise. [Chorus]
