about

I loved the Coope, Boyes and Simpson version of this classic Jean Ritchie song and was thrilled to find a version that suited our choir, from Northern Harmony. In these days of pollution: in our oceans, of our land and the incarceration of our people, it feels an important moment to be singing it. Sandra Smith MD

lyrics

My Lord he said unto me,
Do you like my garden so fair?
You may live in the garden,
if you keep the grasses green,
And I'll return in the cool of the day.

CHORUS
Now is the Cool of the day, Now is the cool of the day,
O this earth is a garden, the garden of my Lord
And he walks in his garden, in the cool of the day

Then my lord he said unto me
Do you like my garden so pure?
You may live in this garden if you keep the waters clean
And I'll return in the cool of the day

chorus

Then my Lord he said unto me
Do you like my garden so free?
You may live in this garden if you keep the people free
And I'll return in the cool of the day
