In The Garden (Hymn)

In The Garden
Charles Austin Miles (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.


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.


This song, which is for some reason usually relegated to funerals, give us some beautiful imagery of Jesus walking and talking with us.  The line that jumps out to me is “And the joy we share as we tarry there, none other has ever known.”  As Christians, we have a joy in our hearts that the world just cannot understand or attain.  What a wonderful Saviour!
