In the Garden
Words and Music by C. Austin Miles

Genesis 3:8
"And they heard the voice of the Lord God
walking in the garden, in the cool of the day."

          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.

            Chorus
            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.

            Chorus
            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.

            Chorus
            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.
