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.

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.

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

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.

How beautiful... photograph and hymn! I love this song! And I love Elvis' version of it, Janie. Thank you for sharing.

I can still see my grandmother tending her yellow and pink climbing roses in her front yard or puttering around her house, singing this song. It will ever remind me of her steadfast love of the Savior.

Thanks, my friend. Hope you're having a lovely Sunday!

XO,

Sheila

LOVE this song. My fav lines..."He speaks and the sound of His voice is so sweet the birds hush their singing..."

Can you just imaging How beautiful it will be to really talk to Him one day?

Love the hymn, and I agree that it seems to be easier to hear HIS voice in the peace and beauty of a garden. Have a great week!

I absolutely love this hymn. I don't know if you had the hymn playing yesterday or not, but the melody is going through my mind as I read the words.
Perfect way to start out my week.
Thanks Janie and Avery is beautiful.
