I Come To The Garden Alone

I Come To The Garden Alone

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 hear is ringing



Id 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.



(My verse)

I come to the garden again

To see the new days beginning

And the sound I hear, that seems so near,

Tis the Son of God returning,









Author's Notes:
This is my favorite song.  Words and music by C. Austin Miles, 1913; adapt. by Charles H. Webb, 1987.  I added the fourth verse.
