Hesk Lyr Req: Bring flowers of the rarest ... (27) RE: Lyr Req: Bring flowers of the rarest ... 07 May 11

Still hoping that someone has some information about this hymn before Mary Walsh altered it in 1883.
It has the feel of a country song in some of the lyrics, especially the first verse, but is more obviously religious elsewhere.
I am curious about the verses, did Mary add the May Day type flavour, or did she make it more appropriate for Victorian congregations by increasing the religious content?
