 In the Secret of His Presence


A beautiful hymn sung by Damaris Carbaugh:

IN THE SECRET OF HIS PRESENCE

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-qVJ3SR4-E8


Hymn lyrics written by Ellen Lakshmi Goreh (1853–1937)


LYRICS:

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,
By the Spirit bear the image of the Master in your face,
Of the Master in your face.

“Dr. Hudson Taylor, head of the great China Inland Mission, stated at Northfield (Massachusetts) that it was the favorite hymn of his missionaries” -- Sankey

Amen, the time we spend alone with the Lord, reflects in our very being. Much time with God, we will bear much resemblence to Him.
