This text, In The Garden, was written by C. Austin Miles in 1912. By his own account (as given in George Sanville's Forty Gospel Hymn Stories), he saw a vivid dream after reading John 20, and was then inspired to write this hymn about the first encounter between Mary Magdalene and her risen Lord. When put in the context of the Scripture that inspired it, one can see that Miles wrote the song from Mary's point of view. In it, she expresses the great joy she must have felt on suddenly hearing and seeing her beloved Savior after witnessing His death and burial (Mark 15:40, 47). However, the long and loving communion to which the refrain alludes is not recorded or implied in the biblical account (John 20:14-18), which rather indicates that their conversation was quite short – as soon as Mary recognizes Jesus, He tells her to go. Perhaps Miles means that that moment was so overflowing with the sudden change of emotions from grief to joy that time seemed to stand still.

The story behind our Wooden Hymn Art Collection.

Hymns bring back such sweet memories. For me, memories of going to the little Baptist church in Vega, Texas with my mom and brothers, sitting close to the front row, trying our best to behave. For my mom, hymnals bring back sweet memories of her Grandmother singing in the kitchen. For many, hymns have a way of bringing back cherished memories of loved ones who have already gone home to be with Jesus. I wanted to create beautiful, timeless art that brings back cherished memories and reminds us of the gospel. I hope you love our wooden hymn art collection as much as I do!
