Could you possibly mean:
Did you not hear My Lady
Go down the garden singing
Blackbird and thrush were silent
To hear the alleys ringing...
Oh saw you not My Lady
Out in the garden there
Shaming the rose and lily
For she is twice as fair.
Though I am nothing to her
Though she must rarely look at me
And though I could never woo her
I love her till I die.
Surely you heard My Lady
Go down the garden singing
Silencing all the songbirds
And setting the alleys ringing...
But surely you see My Lady
Out in the garden there
Rivaling the glittering sunshine
With a glory of golden hair.

It's from an opera by Handel though was popularised as Silent Worship by various early c20th tenors.
Susan Hamlyn

Yes, we know that the melody comes (adapted) from an opera of Handel but who wrote the WORDS?
Lynton Seymour-Whiteley
