Full Text

1 In the quiet with God, I'm relieved of my burdens,
'Tis the sweetest of pleasure to me;
When I'm with Him alone, there is sweetest communion,
'Tis the greatest of glory I see.

I long for the quite with God,
He speaks thro' the Spirit to me;
Some day I will join Him in heaven,
There to spend my eternity!

2 In the quiet with God, There is peace for my spirit,
It is balm for my feeble, sick soul;
It is when I'm alone that I have blest assurance
Of His comfort while ages shall roll! [Refrain]

3 In the quiet with God, It is great consolation,
It is blessed to meet Him alone;
Says His loving, sweet voice when He whispers so gently
That He'll number my soul with His own! [Refrain]
