This beautiful and popular hymn has been arranged for maximum musical effect and beautifully enhances the melody. The warm, flowing melodies weave their way throughout the ensemble, wonderfully supported by rich harmonies and subtle accompaniment. E

For Walter Lathan, a great teacher and the very finest of gentlemen.

- Program Note from score

In the Garden (sometimes rendered by its first line "I Come to the Garden Alone") is a gospel song written by American songwriter C. Austin Miles (1868–1946), a former pharmacist who served as editor and manager at Hall-Mack publishers for 37 years. According to Miles' great-granddaughter, the song was written "in a cold, dreary and leaky basement in Pitman, New Jersey, that didn't even have a window in it, let alone a view of a garden."

The song was first published in 1912 and popularized during the Billy Sunday evangelistic campaigns of the early twentieth century by two members of his staff, Homer Rodeheaver and Virginia Asher. It has been included in 210 hymnals, and recorded numerous times.
