My Secret Garden
I have this secret garden
'tis the place that I love best;
A place of quiet beauty
where I find peace and rest.
My precious Savior meets me
there amongst the lovely flowers;
I sit there at his feet and learn
and pass away the hours.
His wisdom and his knowledge
are what he teaches me;
Things which are not of this world
which fill me with tranquility.
He teaches me of His compassion
which I must show to others;
How I must share this love of
His with my sisters and my brothers.
He gives such lovely gifts to me
which I must learn to share;
When I give these gifts to others
it shows them that I care.
My favorite story is the one
that tells of how for us He died;
Alone upon that cross he hung
where he was crucified.
The first time that I heard it
I just bowed my head and cried;
It broke my heart when I realized,
how they pierced his precious side.
I read of how they buried him
and how he rose again;
That all this had to happen
to remove and take away our sin.
A love like this, is so profound
it takes my breath away;
I find, I love him more and more
Each and every day!
I wonder at the love He's shown
unworthy as we are;
So great a love we've never known,
surpasses human love by far!
Yet if we are to live the way that
He would have us live;
The love that He has shown for us,
to others we must also give!
