467 (L.M.) Isaac Watts

We are a garden walled around,

Chosen and made peculiar ground;

A little spot enclosed by grace

Out of the world's wide wilderness.

Like trees of myrrh and spice we stand,

Planted by God the Father's hand;

And all His springs in Zion flow

To make the young plantation grow.

Awake, O, heav'nly wind, and come,

Blow on this garden of perfume;

Spirit divine, descend and breathe

A gracious gale on plants beneath.

Make our best spices flow abroad,

To entertain our Saviour-God:

And faith, and love, and joy appear,

And ev'ry grace be active here.
