Just like a tender garden,
That's young and green and new;
Almighty God has taken care
To always shelter you.
The weeds that come to plague you,
The storms that come to test,
Help you learn to ever abide
In His perfect place of rest.
So tend to your heart's garden,
Pluck out the weeds and sow
The precious seeds of righteousness,
As through the years you go.
