1. Lord, my strength and my Redeemer,
Ever mindful would I be
Of the many, many blessings
By the hand bestowed on me;
But the purest and the sweetest
Is the holy joy I share
When I go alone in secret
And commune with thee in prayer.
Precious moments, precious moments,
When the world, with all its care,
Is forgotten in the rapture
That is mine in secret prayer!
2. When my soul is overburdened,
And my faith is sorely tried,
When the watchful, wary tempter
Scatters thorns on ev'ry side,
To the friend that never fails me
Like a bird I still can flee,
And alone, where none can hear me,
I can tell it all to thee.
3. As the mist before the morning
Into brightness fades away,
As the dewdrops melt and vanish
At the sunlight's golden ray,
So the clouds that hang above me,
And the shadows, all depart,
When the nearness of thy presence
With its glory fills my heart.
