Lyrics

In the garden, in the garden of Jesus our Savior,
We are growing, we are growing for Jesus alone.

Refrain

Like the flow’rs of the morning His garden adorning,
We are growing for Jesus, His loved and His own.

Little children, little children are the flow’rs in His garden,
We must blossom, we must blossom, for Jesus alone.

Refrain

Jesus loves us, Jesus loves us, the flow’rs of His garden;
He will keep us, He will keep us, nor leave us alone.

Refrain

We must love Him, we must love Him, this Jesus our Savior,
We must trust Him, we must trust Him, in Jesus alone.
