In the Garden has always been one of mine and Tom’s favorite hymns. As we go about our day if we stop the hustle and bustle and listen closely we will hear His voice upon on ears as He calls us His own. May you hear the voice of God call out to you this week as you put all your concerns aside and tarry with God in the garden of your soul.
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.
Refrain ~ 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.
Words: Charles Austin Miles (1912)
