Christ hath a garden walled around

Christ hath a garden walled around,
a paradise of fruitful ground,
chosen by love and fenced by grace
from out the world's wide wilderness.

Like trees of spice his servants stand,
there planted by his mighty hand;
by Eden's gracious streams, that flow
to feed their beauty where they grow.

Awake, O wind of heaven, and bear
their sweetest perfume through the air:
stir up, O south, the boughs that bloom,
till the belov├Ęd Master come:

That he may come, and linger yet
among the trees that he hath set;
that he may evermore be seen
to walk amid the springing green.

(1674-1748); paraphased by (1844-1930)
