1 We gather the fragments, Lord,
That nothing be lost of time,
For buds of minutes will bloom to hours
And fruit will follow the ripening flowers,
The fruitage of years sublime,
The fruitage of years sublime.

Ref;
Be wise, be wise,
To service swift and sweet,
For fragments laid at the Master’s feet,
He blesses, and multiplies.

2 We gather the fragments, Lord,
That nothing be lost of strength,
For life that dwells in the coral cells
Builds bit by bit of the reef that swells
To palm-crowned isles at length,
To palm-crowned isles at length. [Refrain]

3 We gather the fragments, Lord,
No tiniest gift to lose;
For oft we’ve read of the thousand fed
From two small fishes and barley bread
Which thou didst deign to use,
Which thou didst deign to use. [Refrain]
