1 In the dear Lord’s garden,
Planted here below,
Many tiny flowerets,
In sweet beauty grow.

Jesus calls the children,
Bids them come and stand
In His pleasant garden,
Watered by His hand.

2 Christ, the loving Gardener,
Tends these blossoms small;
Loves the little lilies
As the cedars tall. [Refrain]

3 Lord, Thy call we answer
Take us in Thy care;
Train us in Thy garden,
In Thy work to share. [Refrain]
