“In The Garden” is Witten by Charles Austin Miles who was a pharmacist but he decided to abandoned that career and write his first Gospel song. He wrote that he wanted to known for writing gospel music because that was how he felt he would be of the most use to his Master, whom he willingly served. “In The Garden” is a beautiful message that has a clear picture of what life will be like as we meet our Savior and Master again. Just as Mary Magdalene saw Jesus in the garden, we also have that opportunity. Will will see our Lord Jesus Christ again. This song is sung at funerals often and brings hope through it’s message of peace and comfort.
When creating “Sweet By and By” it was my hope for you to feel uplifted and strengthened by the power of heaven. God loves you and it is evident in the lyrics and melodies within the hymns on “Sweet By and By”. The authors of these hymns thoughtfully and humbly expressed their souls in this music.
