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


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.


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


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