THE HEAVENLY SECRET




I have learnt a heavenly secret,
Yet I know not how or where;
But I know ‘tis sweet and precious,
Ever true, and glad, and fair;
And that God in heaven reveals it
|:To all whose ears can hear.:|


And I know that ere I learnt it
Oft my way was lone and hard;
And anon in life’s glad music
There was always that which jarred,
And a hidden, dreary discord
|:That all its sweetness marred.:|


But my harp of life was lifted
By the Lord who knew the range
Of its many strings who made it,
And He struck a keynote strange:
At the touch of Christ my Master
|:I heard the music change.:|


Then no more it failed and faltered,
And no longer sobbed and strove;
But it seemed to soar and mingle
With the song of heaven above;
For the piercèd hand of Jesus
|:Had struck the keynote—LOVE.:|


All thy heart’s long-prisoned music
Let the Master’s hand set free—
Let Him whisper now His secret,
As He whispered once to me:
“Child, My love’s the golden keynote
|:Of all My will for thee!:|”
