“Let my teaching drop as the rain,
My speech distill as the dew,
As the droplets on the fresh grass
And as the showers on the herb."
~ Deuteronomy 32:2

In the Garden was one of my daddy's favourite hymns.  He used to sing it to me at night to try to get me to relax and fall asleep; frequently, though, he was the one who fell asleep, sitting on the floor just outside of my bedroom door.  We also sang it as a duet more than a few times at church with my best friend accompanying us on the piano.  I sang it to him the night I said good-bye.  It is a beautiful song, and I have always found it comforting, even more so now.
