HIDDEN LIFE




Here the Christian’s life is hidden
From the great and worldly wise,
Nothing know they of the treasure,
Nor can they partake its joys:
|: Clouds of error :|
Veil its blessings from their eyes.


All’s a mystery to their feelings,
How they live and are so blessed,
Love divine and zeal inflaming,
Inward peace and joy attest:
|: But the worldling :|
Ne’er can find a settled rest.


The believer needs no praises,
From the throng to charm his ear,
Flattering tongues can ne’er exalt him,
Nor can make his worth appear:
|: He’s exalted :|
Far above this lower sphere.


With his God he holds communion,
This he deems his greatest store,
All the plaudits of vain mortals,
When compared with this are poor:
|: There’s his treasure :|
Still increasing more and more.


Farewell pomp —he serves his Maker,
And if he his ways approve,
Men and devils when united,
Never shall his hopes remove:
|: Firm the basis, :|
Sovereign power, unchanging love.
