Representative Text

1 Hid with Christ, in God the Father,
Seeking joys that are above,
Feeding on the hidden manna,
Satisfied and lost in love.

Underneath His shadow hiding,
Where the soul can know no harm;
In the secret place abiding,
Sheltered by His mighty arm.

2 Not a care, for Jesus careth,
Weary trusting one for thee;
When his darts the tempter hurleth,
To thy refuge quickly flee. [Refrain]

3 Ev’ry dart that would destroy me,
Only strikes my hiding tower;
And I rest, unharmed within Him,
Hidden from the tempter’s power. [Refrain]

4 O the bliss of sweetly resting
On the arms of Jesus’ love!
Where all care and disappointment
Ne’er thy trusting heart can move. [Refrain]

5 Hearing now the softest whispers
Of my precious Lord and King;
In the secret of His presence,
‘Neath the shadow of His wing. [Refrain]
