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.

Song: 'In The Garden'
Words and music by C. Austin Miles


  1. Oh, Adrienne. This hymn holds such an incredibly special place in my heart. It was sung at my father's funeral.

    And, each word is so true. Thank you for sharing the joy.

    How beautiful! And the hymn is one of my favorites.
