In the Garden A Cappella by Chris Rupp (Official Video)
- 2021 19 Jan
We love hearing this Sunday school classic “In The Garden” being sung a cappella by talented musician Chris Rupp. Coming from a musical family, Chris knew early on that his calling was also in the musical world. This baritone recently released his second a cappella album titled “A New Day: A Cappella Vol.II”.
The lyrics to this traditional hymn are such a sweet reminder of God’s faithfulness to be by our side and serve as encouragement to our faith walk! As a child, this song was one of my favorites not just for it’s sing-song chorus but it made our Heavenly Father seem tangible. What a beautiful reminder of the relationship that we have with the Creator!
“And He walks with me
And He talks with me
And He tells me I am His own
And the joy we share as we tarry there
None other has ever known”
Though the chorus is the most remembered part of the song, we love the second verse! It paints a moving picture of of a loving God, the creator of the world speaking softly with a voice that even the smallest creatures stop to listen!
“He speaks, and the sound of His voice
Is so sweet the birds hush their singing,
And the melody that He gave to me
Within my heart is ringing."
Indeed God has given us a song in our heart and that song of love should be overflowing in our daily actions! It’s so precious to think that the Creator cares so much that He is in communion with each one of us if we choose to stop and listen!
