In The Garden
In the garden I hear the birds,
their sweet and lilting songs.
In the garden I see the trees,
limbs reaching to a clear blue sky.
In the garden I feel a Spirit
filling my heart with hope and joy.
In the garden I know a peace
quieting my worry removing all fear.
The garden touches the senses
thrills the heart surrounds the soul
gives love and hope.
