In the Garden

On my drive to and from work this week, I have been enjoying the Collingsworth Family's Hymns From Home album that released last year. 


I love singing along with the old hymns. They carry so many truths and promises from Scripture and are set to melodies that resonate peace and joy. And the Collingsworth Family have such powerful blend and harmonies, they make these old gems shine with new luster.

As I listened and sang along with Kim Collingsworth's piano instrumental version of In the Garden, I thought about the beauties of God's creation I have been privileged to witness this spring and decided to try and share the beauty of that old hymn with a few of the sights I've managed to capture. I hope you enjoy.

In the Garden
Written by C. Austin Miles
Published in 1912


♪♫♪♫♪♫♪♫♪♫♪♫
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- thru 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.

Those are so beautiful. I felt like I was looking at pages of a calendar. Favorite was the dove.

Thank you, Nancy. :-) I have a pair of the sweetest doves that visit below my window every morning. They're not particularly flashy, but the closer you look, the prettier they are.
