CAPO: 3rd Fret/KEY: Bb/PLAY: G
[G] Death is an angel sent [C] down from a-[G] bove ...
Sent for the buds and the [A7] flowers we [D7] love ...
[G] Truly, 'tis so for in [C] heaven's own [G] way ...
Each soul is a flower in the [D7] Master's Bou-[G] quet.
[C] Gathering flowers for the [G] Master's Bouquet ...
Beautiful flowers that will [A7] never de-[D7] cay ...
[G] Gathered by angels and [C] carried a-[G] way ...
Forever to bloom in the [D7] Master's Bou-[G] quet.
Loved ones are passing each day and each hour
Passing away as the life of a flower
But ev'ry 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 for, (*Ay)
Transplanted to bloom in the Master's Bouquet.
*Note. (*Ay); variant of Aye; to express surprise.
