1 Let my life be hid in Thee,
Life of life and Light of light!
Love’s illimitable Sea!
Depth of peace and power the height!
Let my life be hid in Thee
From vexation and annoy;
Calm in Thy tranquility,
All my mourning turned to joy.
2 Let my life be hid in Thee
When alarms are gathering round,
Covered with Thy panoply,
Safe within Thy holy ground.
Let my life be hid in Thee;
In the world, and yet above;
Hid in Thine eternity,
In the ocean of Thy love.
