Representative Text

1 We are little blossoms in our Father’s garden,
Breathing words of sweetness weary hearts to cheer;
Blossoms of the morning in our bright apparel,
We will prove a blessing while we tarry here.

Dear little blossoms fair are we,
Shining as bright as bright can be;
Earnest our endeavor saddened hearts to cheer,
While we tarry here.

2 We are little blossoms shining for the Master,
Like a gleaming city on the lofty heights;
While we shine for Jesus, we are helping others,
Unto all around us cheerful little lights. [Refrain]

3 We are little blossoms; may we shine forever
With our loving Saviour in His garden fair;
By the living waters we shall wither never,
But shall shine in beauty ever over there. [Refrain]
