O, let us exalt our dear Lord and proclaim,
In songs of true gratitude, praise to His name!
As songs of the angels in sweetest accord,
Our thanks and our praises shall rise to the Lord.

Lyrics
Jesus has taken a beautiful bud
Out of our garden of love
Borne it away to the city of God
Home of the angels above.

Full blooming flowers alone will not do
Some must be young and ungrown
So the frail buds He is gathering too
Beautiful gems for His throne.

Fathers and mothers, weep not or be sad
Still on the Savior rely
You shall behold them again and be glad
Beautiful flowers on high.

Blooming in beauty in Heaven they are
Blooming for you and for me
Follow the Lord, tho' the city be far
'Til our bright blossoms we see.

Chorus:
Gathering buds, gathering buds
Wonderful care will be giv'n
Jesus is gathering, day after day
Buds for the palace of Heaven.
