In the Garden (song)

In the Garden (song)

"In the Garden" is a gospel song written by 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 New Jersey that didn't even have a window in it let alone a view of a garden." [ [ Note about Miles] ] 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.

A June 18, 1958 recording by Perry Como was part of his album "When You Come to the End of the Day". [RCA Victor Records catalog number LSP-1885.] The gospel song is also sung in the closing scene of the film "Places in the Heart". It is also used in juxtaposition to "Blue Tail Fly" near the beginning of the Merchant/Ivory film of Carson McCullers' "The Ballad of the Sad Cafe".
