My Lord he said down to 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 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 down to 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 down to me
Do you like my pastures so green?
You may live in this garden if you will feed my lambs
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.

Now is the cool of the day,
Now is the cool of the day,
This earth is a garden, the garden of my Lord
And He walks in His garden in the cool of the day.

This earth is a garden, the garden of my Lord
And He walks in His garden in the cool of the day.
