1 Here, Lord, we offer Thee all that is fairest,
Bloom from the garden, and flowers from the field;
Gifts for the stricken ones, knowing Thou carest
More for the love than the wealth that we yield.
2 Send, Lord, by these to the sick and the dying,
Speak to their hearts with a message of peace;
Comfort the sad, who in weakness are lying,
Grant the departing a gentle release.
3 Raise, Lord, to health again those who are sickened,
Fair be their lives as the roses in bloom;
Give of Thy grace to the souls Thou hast quickened,
Gladness for sorrow, and brightness for gloom.
4 We, Lord, like flowers, must bloom and must wither;
We, like these blossoms, must fade and must die;
Gather us Lord, to Thy bosom for ever,
Grant us a place in Thy house in the sky.

Here, Lord, we offer Thee all that is fairest. Flower Services. This is the best known and most popular of Mr. Blunt's hymns. From its composition in 1879, when it was first sung at the Flower Service at St. Luke's, it has attracted attention until it is deemed essential to the completeness of most collections of importance.
