First Sunday after Pentecost

Two very different takes on the same song. The second one has an extra verse, so that's the one I copied in below.





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

Now is the cool of the day
Now is the cool of the day
This earth it 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

Then my Lord, He said unto me,
Do you like my pastures so green?
You may live in this garden if you will feed My sheep [lambs]
And I'll return in the cool of the day

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
