Representative Text

1 Have you reached this abiding place in Jesus?
Are you anchored in the True and Living Vine?
Have you peace that the Devil cannot shatter?
Is the Spirit your companion all the time?

Refrain:
Have you reached this abiding place in Jesus?
Are you anchored in the True and Living Vine?
There is rest from ev’ry care in the secret place of pray’r,
There is vict’ry for you all along the line.

2 Have you faith that shall never, never falter
When your life is threatened with a thousand cares?
Have you grace that will win in ev’ry conflict
When the Tempter comes upon you unawares? [Refrain]

3 Do you love Jesus best of all each moment?
Have you died to all the trifling things of time?
If you’ve found this abiding place in Jesus,
You have constant vict’ry all along the line. [Refrain]

4 There’s a place in the secret of His presence,
Where the warring sounds of earth cannot annoy,
Where the soul rests securely in His keeping,
And the charms of earth cannot our peace destroy. [Refrain]

5 Here we rest and enjoy His promised fullness,
Here He keeps us in the hollow of His hand;
And tho’ storms sweet the soul in all their fury,
He will guide us safely to the Harbor Land. [Refrain]
