In the Garden (Countdown: Three Nights!!)


During my numerous drives over the past 8 days, I actually haven't listened to much music. However, two days ago I started listening to a county/bluegrass style gospel album. This is not my preferred genre of music, but I've been enjoying it. In particular the hymn In the Garden has been especially beautiful. I've been looking for a decent version of this song for sometime and am excited to revel in my new find. I have posted the lyrics below so you too may enjoy them.


Today was my second day of working as a student assistant again. My grad assistantship ended on Monday, and I'm so happy to still work at COPH. It's been a little odd knowing I'm no longer the GA, but I'm excited to be moving forward in my life.


Only 3 more nights!!!!!!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

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 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; through 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

You have to write more about your new job! Is this the direction you want to go? Can't wait to hear about it!

All right, as soon as my house sitting stint is complete I'll post about my job. It will give me something to write about! (sometimes it seems like my life is rather boring; I mean, I don't have a new house or anything!)
