"LEAVE THE FLOWERS"

Verse 1
I said, "Let me walk in the fields."
He said, "No, walk in the town."
I said, "There are no flowers there."
He said, "No flowers, but a crown."

Verse 2
I said, "Lord, I shall miss the light,
And my friends will miss me, they say."
He answered, "My child, choose tonight
If I am to miss you or they."

[Fields or the town, flowers or the crown.] [Two times]

Verse 3
I pleaded for time to be given,
He said, "Is it hard to decide?
It will not have seemed hard in Heaven
To have followed the steps of your Guide."

Verse 4
So I cast my last look at the fields
As I set my face to the town.
He asked me, "My child, do you yield?
Will you leave the flowers for a crown?"

Bridge
Then He took my hand
And came into my life,
And now I walk in His light
The pathway that I feared to see.

[Repeat Bridge three times]

Ending: ---[Two times]
