Come with us, sweet flow'rs, and worship Christ the Lord;
Let your perfumes hover round the Babe adored.

1 Modest violet, hiding in the grassy shade,
Thou canst say how humble he for us is made.

Come with us, sweet flow'rs, and worship Christ the Lord;
Let your perfumes hover round the Babe adored.

2 Lily fair, low bending in the sun's warm light,
Thou dost tell that he is pure as thou art white.

Come with us, sweet flow'rs, and worship Christ the Lord;
Let your perfumes hover round the Babe adored.

3 As thou, pansy, shinest forth in bright array,
So doth he his majesty to man display.

Come with us, sweet flow'rs, and worship Christ the Lord;
Let your perfumes hover round the Babe adored.

4 As thou, rose, wide op'ning dost thy scent impart,
So his love expanding, draws each sinful heart.

Come with us, sweet flow'rs, and worship Christ the Lord;
Let your perfumes hover round the Babe adored.
