The Garden of my Soul
There is a garden in my soul
that God made a part of me;
I enter often - a place of rest -
calming for what is, or will be.
Within that garden He nurtures me -
waters and feeds my needs;
Healing takes place in my garden -
wondrous are His deeds.
Within that garden, we walk and talk -
just as in a favourite hymn;
Everything bright and covered with dew -
never a corner that’s dim.
Peace and Joy and Love, I feel -
within the garden of my soul;
Coming here several times a day -
I always leave feeling “whole”.
Thank Thee, Lord, for this sacred place -
for life, a flower, and a song;
Your substance in the garden of my soul -
leads to all that is Godly and strong.
