Hymn/Song Information

Christ in His heavenly garden walks all




Christ in His heavenly garden walks all day,
And calls to souls upon the world's highway ;
Wearied with trifles, maimed and sick with sin,
Christ by the gate stands, and invites them in.


" How long, unwise, will ye pursue your woe ?
Here from the throne sweet waters ever go ;
Here the white lilies shine like stars above ;
Here in the red rose burns the face of Love.


" Tis not from earthly paths I bid you flee,
But lighter in My ways your feet will be ;
Tis not to summon you from human mirth,
But add a depth and sweetness not of earth."


"Still by the gate I stand as on ye stray :
Turn your steps hither, am not I the Way ?
The sun is falling fast ; the night is nigh :
Why will ye wander ? Wherefore will ye die ? "
