When asked to review this new CD, The Garden by Kari Jobe, I quickly scanned through the backstory. When the CD arrived, I wasn’t thinking about the backstory, I just popped it in and listened to it while working. After a couple of songs, I was so calm, and at peace. All of the songs from this CD have that effect on me. Now let me tell you the backstory, so you can understand. The peace from this CD comes from the garden’s story of life, death and rebirth.

Kari Jobe's new CD, "The Garden"

This CD springs from a very heartbreaking time in Kari’s life, after her sister’s miscarriage. She finds solace in the garden of her new home, and the inspiration for these songs. The song “The Garden” is meant to remind us that even through the seasons of death, God is there. We may be heartbroken, and grieving. Things may not be working the way we want them to work, but God is always working in us, through us and for us. These songs are meant to help us lean on God, understanding that He will draw nearer to us, as we draw near to Him.

Spring is my favorite seasons because the regrowth reminds me that God is always at work in our lives. The garden is an amazing place. In the winter, everything dies out, but in the Spring, life resurfaces and plants are reborn. Winter can be cold, and depressing, but Spring brings another chance, and reminds us that He is always with us, working for us, and our good. Things may not go how we want them to go. Life, death and rebirth may be ever present, but so is God.

Kari Jobe's beautiful new CD "The Garden", is about life, death, and rebirth in God.

Kari Jobe –

Kari Jobe is a Grammy nominated worship leader in Christian music. The CD, The Garden, comes right on the heels of Majestic, which featured the worship anthem “Forever”. One of my favorite songs from our Christian radio station, “I Am Not Alone”, is also on Majestic. The CD, The Garden really touched me. It gave me inspiration that even though we all experience the grief and sorrow of the death of loved ones, God is there to comfort us. He consistently leads us through life, death, and rebirth.

What are some of your favorite hymns that help give you comfort in hard times?


  1. My favorite hymn is In The Garden. Has been since I was a child.

    • Oh Trista! I love this song as well. I’ve loved it ever since I heard Tennessee Ernie Ford sing it when I was little.

  2. I know it’s kind of a pat answer, but Amazing Grace will always draw my heart to the Lord.

    • Mimi, I think it is kind of a ‘pat answer’ because it’s been around forever, and everyone has heard it. The message it holds though, is so strong. It still grabs me, and pulls me in as well. “The Old Rugged Cross” is another. I used to sing it to my children as babies, as I rocked them to sleep. I cannot sing it without weeping.

  3. Judy Cox says:

    I love Amazing Grace!! It has always given me comfort at all times.

  4. Velvet says:

    Amazing grace is a favorite in our home my youngest when she was little every time she heard it would just stop and start rocking back and forth to it

  5. Dana MATTHEWS says:

    In the Garden is the first one that comes to mind. It has always brought peace and comfort to me. My daughter, 18 now, recalls this song as part of her childhood. Instead of lullabies, I sang In The Garden to her at naptime. I hope it brings peace and comfort to her in times of need throughout her life and she remembers I shared it with her.

  6. Darcy Koch says:

    Whenever I hear God Bless America I get so sentimental and teary eyed.

  7. Margaret Appel says:

    My Grandmother loved to play the organ, and she would play all the old hymns that you don’t always hear anymore. Somewhere here I have her somewhat tattered old music hymnal. She often played Amazing Grace and Silent Night. Whenever I hear Amazing Grace I think of her & find comfort in it.

    • How sweet! I love this. I know my children tell me they love “The Old Rugged Cross” because they remember that I used to sing it to them when I rocked them at night.

  8. Jackie says:

    I’m not that familiar with many hymns, but have always loved Amazing Grace.

  9. Jodi W says:

    Amazing Grace is a beautiful song!

  10. Not to copy but Amazing Grace as always helped me and also How Great Thou Are

  11. Judy Cox says:

    I have always enjoyed Amazing Grace, because it is a little bit calming at a funeral.

  12. Lisa Williams says:

    I’ve always loved the hymn, Old Rugged Cross. It was my mom’s favorite and not only is it a beautiful song but now when I hear it I think of my mom who was everything to me.

  13. Dotty J Boucher says:

    I love bring me to the king, amazing grace, here I am , Lord

  14. How Great Thou Art. Reminds me God is in control.

  15. Julie Waldron says:

    Maybe it isn’t a hymn but I like Shout to the North.

  16. Dana Rodriguez says:

    Ever since I was a little girl I have always loved In The Garden!
