From The Hymnal ~ In The Garden

Sunday, March 20, 2011
Last night I was chatting with a very special friend - I was telling this friend about all my favorite flowers - violets (that represent faithfulness), roses, lilacs, and my list goes on and on. After that conversation, I found myself humming this hymn.....I love this hymn. It has always been one of my favorites but just like flowers, I don't have just one favorite! Happy first day of spring!!

In The Garden

I come to the garden alone
While the dew is still on the roses
And the voice I hear falling on my ear
The Son of God discloses.


And He walks with me, and He talks with me,
And He tells me I am His own;
And the joy we share as we tarry there,
None other has ever known.

He speaks, and the sound of His voice,
Is so sweet the birds hush their singing,
And the melody that He gave to me
Within my heart is ringing.


I’d stay in the garden with Him
Though the night around me be falling,
But He bids me go; through the voice of woe
His voice to me is calling.
