"In The Garden"
Words and Music by Charles Austin Miles, 1913

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 that 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.

This music was written about a flower garden that existed
just a few blocks from the Grove Auditorium.
As Mr. Miles walked through that garden
he found peace and solace there.
The garden was his inspiration to write this song,
one of many he wrote, but none as well known as this one.
