You are the Master Gardener, you tend to all my needs,
With water you refresh me. With love you plant the seeds.
You take away the grip of ugliness and sin,
You’ve given me a second chance – a new life to begin.
When all the weeds infest me and choke away my life,
You lead me on to heaven – away from all this strife.
I thank you, Heavenly Father, for all your love and care,
Now help me to proclaim you for all the world to share.
