Garden of Love
I want to walk with you I want to talk with you in the garden, garden of love walking in the cool of day we will talk, we will play in the garden, garden of love
Here inside this land of harvest I am gardener and an artist working with you in the garden...of love I will see all things harmless except the serpent and charmed hiss here before You in the garden...of love I want to walk with you I want to talk with you in the garden, garden of love walking in the cool of day we will talk, we will play in the garden, garden of love
Won't hide behind my garments sewed fig leaves or skinned varmints bare before in the garden..of love May we never have a parting or sentry angels standing, guarding my entrance back into our garden...of love
