The Beautiful Garden of Prayer ~ hymn

I wanted to share with you this lovely hymn. It has been running through my head quite a lot this week. I find it interesting when I know a hymn that my husband doesn’t or vice versa. This is one I grew up with. At least, I think I did since I can remember it from way back when. Prayer has been something I have been engaged in a lot lately. I always pray but I have been spending more time in the garden of prayer recently. This past week in particular there has been a good bit on my mind so I am spending time sharing it with God, who already knows what I am coming to Him with. As this hymn says, there is a light of His presence when you are with Him in prayer. He has hope and peace to give when you are praying. His blessings abound and He is able to sharing them with His children in the beautiful garden of prayer. Don’t neglect it. He’s waiting.

The Beautiful Garden of Prayer

words: Eleanor Allen Schroll
music: James H Fillmore

1 There’s a garden where Jesus is waiting,
There’s a place that is wondrously fair,
For it glows with the light of His presence
’Tis that beautiful garden of prayer.

Refrain:
O the beautiful garden, the garden of prayer,
O the beautiful garden of prayer!
There my Savior awaits, and He opens the gates
To the beautiful garden of prayer.

2 There’s a garden where Jesus is waiting,
And I go, with my burden and care,
Just to learn from His lips words of comfort
In the beautiful garden of prayer. [Refrain]

3 There’s a garden where Jesus is waiting,
And He bids you to come meet Him there,
Just to bow and receive a new blessing
In the beautiful garden of prayer. [Refrain]


Blessings,
Lori, At Home.

    Beautiful hymn. I loved what you shared about prayer personally as well. I’m a bit reminded of one of my grandmother’s lovely favorites: “In the Garden.” Thanks for this, and for reminding me of my sweet Granny today! 😊

      I’m going to look up “In The Garden”. I enjoy learning new hymns.
