Thy Word is Like a Garden

Thy Word is like a garden, Lord,
with flowers bright and fair;
And every one who seeks may pluck
a lovely cluster there.

Thy Word is like a deep, deep mine;
and jewels rich and rare
Are hidden in its mighty depths
for every searcher there.

Thy Word is like a starry host:
a thousand rays of light
Are seen to guide the traveler
and make his pathway bright.

O may I love Thy precious Word,
may I explore the mine,
May I its fragrant flowers glean,
may light upon me shine!

Hi Patty--
This is at a new strip Mall near the Burlington Mall! It has Border's Books, L.L. Bean, and Coldwater Creek stores there. I mostly go to window shop, but I thought their grounds were worth keeping via photos.
