Come into the garden, Maud, For the black bat, night, has flown, Come into the garden, Maud, I am here at the Gate alone; Maud And the woodbine spices are wafted abroad, And the musk of the rose is blown.

Hold onto your breath Hold onto your heart Hold onto your hope , March up to the Gate And bid it open.yip harburg

The best and sweetest flowers of paradise God gives to His people when they are upon their knees. Prayer is the Gate of heaven.
