Written by 5:52 am Amazine

The Master’s Garden

Awake, O north wind; and come, thou south; blow upon my garden, that the spices thereof may flow out…

God’s Garden, watered and sweet scented

That will I be

On sun scorched days, a veil of cloud o’er me

His shade refreshes;

 I draw from springs whose water never fails;

Timeless it roves through His bower,

On stormy nights, when all is dark; a pillar of fire through my boughs I see

He Weeds, He Prunes, He Fences

my foliage –


guards me day and night

His compassion I hear in soft trickling whispers

He sends the blustery north wind, my branches sway yet stay strong;

my roots are hidden within His Palm.

Seasons change;

The warm south wind softly blows,

My keeper beckons to weary travellers;

To share His shaded fragrant retreat

Renewed and refreshed they travel on,

To tell of a Gardener, who met them kindly on the way;

Of bountiful fruits generously served,

Of a passionate bond that held them back, truly They embrace and journey on;

My Keeper beckons to weary travellers; to share his shaded fragrant retreat,

I am my Keeper’s fragrant garden and many more does He have,

Carefully nurtured and cherished – The Master’s work never ends,

Each garden is His work of Art.
