This is an ancient hymn taken from the middle-ages. The Lyricist & Composer is unknown.

The hymn is the encounter Mary Magdalene has at the empty tomb of Jesus on Easter Ressurection Sunday, where she does not recognize the Glorified Lord and addresses him as the "gardener":

John 20:10Then the disciples went back to their homes, 11but Mary stood outside the tomb crying. As she wept, she bent over to look into the tomb 12and saw two angels in white, seated where Jesus' body had been, one at the head and the other at the foot. 13They asked her, "Woman, why are you crying?" "They have taken my Lord away," she said, "and I don't know where they have put him." 14At this, she turned around and saw Jesus standing there, but she did not realize that it was Jesus.
15"Woman," he said, "why are you crying? Who is it you are looking for?" Thinking he was the gardener, she said, "Sir, if you have carried him away, tell me where you have put him, and I will get him." 16Jesus said to her, "Mary." She turned toward him and cried out in Aramaic, "Rabboni!" (which means Teacher).

Scripture References of Mary Magdalene:

Jesus Cast 7 Devils from her:
Luke 8:1After this, Jesus traveled about from one town and village to another, proclaiming the good news of the kingdom of God. The Twelve were with him, 2and also some women who had been cured of evil spirits and diseases: Mary (called Magdalene) from whom seven demons had come out.

She is one of the 5 people mentioned at the Crucifixion along with Mary the mother of Jesus, John the beloved disciple, Mary the mother of James and Joses, and the mother of Zebedee's sons.

The greatest sinner of the bible, who became one of his most devoted followers. Known to wipe his feet with her long beautiful hair

John 12:3Then Mary took about a pint[a] of pure nard, an expensive perfume; she poured it on Jesus' feet and wiped his feet with her hair. And the house was filled with the fragrance of the perfume.
4But one of his disciples, Judas Iscariot, who was later to betray him, objected, 5"Why wasn't this perfume sold and the money given to the poor? It was worth a year's wages.[b]" 6He did not say this because he cared about the poor but because he was a thief; as keeper of the money bag, he used to help himself to what was put into it.

7"Leave her alone," Jesus replied. " It was intended that she should save this perfume for the day of my burial. 8You will always have the poor among you, but you will not always have me."

Jesus and Mary Magdalene were not husband and wife. Scripture does not support this claim. All ancient churches which trace back to the apostles (both east and west) have taught for over 2,000 years that Jesus was NOT married to a woman.

Jesus however did have a bride, her name is the Church. There is scriptural support to back this up.
