The Garden of the Lord


"For the Lord will comfort Zion...and He will make her wilderness like Eden, and her desert like the Garden of the Lord" (Isa. 51:2)

God made the first garden and only His hand
Commands the rain and sun
That quickens the seed, the heart of the flower,
Only His will is done.

Thus we rejoice in the green of the year;
Offer thanks in the golden glow;
Sing praises when the bough is white
With soft, new fallen snow.

In a garden we touch the hem of His robe;
In a garden we make our prayer;
We can open the gate, whatever the season,
And walk with the Master there.
