Gathering Flowers for the Master's Bouquet

Death is an angel sent down from above
Sent for the buds and flowers we love
Truly 'tis so, for in heaven's own way
Each soul is a flower in the Master's bouquet

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

Loved ones are passing each day and each hour
Passing away as the life of a flower
But every bud and each blossom some day
Will bloom as a flower in the Master's bouquet


Let us be faithful till life's work is done
Blooming with love till the reaper shall come
Then we'll be gathered together someday
Transplanted to bloom in the Master's bouquet
