Hid away with Jesus

Representative Text

1 From all the world I’ve turned aside,
And found a fold of shelter;
In Christ I safely now abide,
Oh, praise His name forever.

Hid away, hid away,
Hid away with Jesus;
I’m washed and cleansed in Jesus’ blood,
My heart is filled with praises;
Hid away, hid away,
Hid away with Jesus;
“My life is hid with Christ in God,”
I’m hid away with Jesus.

2 A home in sect, no, not for me;
My home came down from heaven—
Jerusalem, so pure and free!
To all the door is open. [Refrain]

3 Surrounded by salvation’s wall,
A fortress strong, abiding,
The pow’rs of earth, “the gates of hell,”
Are weak and unprevailing. [Refrain]

4 Jerusalem—home from above—
The home that hath foundation;
Her children all are born of love,
And blest with full salvation. [Refrain]
