In the secret of His presence how my




In the secret of His presence
how my soul delights to hide!
Oh, how precious are the lessons
which I learn at Jesus’ side!
Earthly cares can never vex me,
neither trials lay me low;
For when Satan comes to tempt me,
to the secret place I go,
To the secret place I go.


When my soul is faint and thirsty,
’neath the shadow of His wing
There is cool and pleasant shelter,
and a fresh and crystal spring;
And my Savior rests beside me,
as we hold communion sweet:
If I tried, I could not utter
what He says when thus we meet,
What He says when thus we meet.


Only this I know: I tell Him
all my doubts, my griefs and fears;
Oh, how patiently He listens!
and my drooping soul He cheers:
Do you think He ne’er reproves me?
What a false Friend He would be,
If He never, never told me
of the sins which He must see,
Of the sins which He must see.


Would you like to know the sweetness
of the secret of the Lord?
Go and hide beneath His shadow:
this shall then be your reward;
And whene’er you leave the silence
of that happy meeting place,
You must mind and bear the image
of the Master in your face,
Of the Master in your face.
