Full Lyrics of the song "In the Garden"
also known as "I Come to the Garden Alone"

[3/4 time]

Verse 1:

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

Verse 2:

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

Verse 3:

I'd stay in the garden with him

'Though the night around me be falling.

But he bids me go through the voice I know

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
