Tend Your Garden
Words and music by Jeanne Loehnis
Copyright 2003 Jeanne Loehnis Appleton, Wisconsin
In the Springtime, plant a garden of God's love.
In your soul may it bloom and grow may God's light glow from within.
May seeds of God’s love and God’s joy no longer wait in vain.
Always in each one of us does God abide.
Begin now in earnest to clear away old pain.
Give Love the room to bloom within your soul.
Tend your garden. Nourish freely with patience.
Let the showers of God's sweet love rain from above on your soul.
Rain on your garden of goodness and happiness and peace.
Ever to strengthen the roots of God's great love.
Provide Love a haven, calm, and safe and free.
Soon you will know the blossom of your soul.
From your garden, reap a harvest of plenty.
Gather blessings of joy and peace which will increase as you share.
As you share kindness and patience and tolerance for all.
All those who God loves and calls His very own.
The gifts that God gave you were planted to grow
and to become sweet food for other souls.
