Lyrics

Death is an angel sent down from above
Sent for the flowers and the lilies we love
Surely it's so, for in heaven's own way
The soul is a flower of the Master's bouquet

Gathering flowers for the Master's bouquet
Beautiful flowers that will never decay
Gathered by angels and carried away
For ever to bloom in the Master's bouquet

We must be faithful till life's work is done
Blooming away in the warmth of the sun
But everybody needs blossom some day
We'll bloom as the flowers in the Master's bouquet

  • Gathering Flowers For The Master's Bouquet

    Death is an angel sent down from above
    Sent for the flowers and the lilies we love
    Surely it's so, for in heaven's own way
    The soul is a flower of the Master's bouquet

    Gathering flowers for the Master's bouquet
    Beautiful flowers that will never decay
    Gathered by angels and carried away
    For ever to bloom in the Master's bouquet

    We must be faithful till life's work is done
    Blooming away in the warmth of the sun
    But everybody needs blossom some day
    We'll bloom as the flowers in the Master's bouquet
