A Walk in the Garden
The secret of the garden lies beyond the gate, wading past the weeds , going thru all the formalities in life, growing up expecting the normal, when in the shadow of the cross our back is bent to the earth, our eyes take in  the path of the ant, then to realize  that carrying this burden meant to bring it to the Creator.
my plans are all here
on your knee i bend
giving you all i own
you put it on the cross.
when in the shadow
my ground was planted
so that Your  power
might rest on me!
"I take, O cross, thy shadow
for my abiding place...."

Beneath the cross of Jesus
I fain would take my stand,
The shadow of a mighty rock
Within a weary land;
A home within the wilderness,
A rest upon the way,
From the burning of the noontide heat,
And the burden of the day.
Upon the cross of Jesus
Mine eye at times can see
The very dying form of one
Who suffered there for me;
And from my smitten heart with tears
Two wonders I confess -
The wonders of redeeming love,
And my unworthiness.
I take, O cross, thy shadow
For my abiding place;
I ask no other sunshine than
The sunshine of His face;
Content to let the world go by,
To know no gain nor loss.
My sinful self my only shame,
My glory all the cross.
