Christ Hath a Garden
Anthem for SATB choir with piano accompaniment. Text by Isaac Watts, setting by J. Bruce Ashton.
Christ hath a garden walled around
A Paradise of fruitful ground,
Chosen by love and fenced by grace
From out the work’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 heav’n, and bear
Their sweetest perfume on the air:
Stir up, O south, the boughs that bloom
Till the beloved 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.
– by Isaac Watts
