Representative Text

1 Shut in with God, the weary world forbidden;
Shut in with God for one blest hour;
Shut in with God, and in His bosom hidden,
To know His saving, keeping pow’r.

Chorus:
Shut in with God my soul desires to be,
Alone with Him who gave himself for me;
In holy union and sweet communion,
Shut in with God, shut in with God

2 Shut in with God, the voice of strife excluded;
Shut in with God, sweet peace is mine;
Shut in with God, no other one included,
I drink of living springs divine. [Chorus]

3 Shut in with God, His secrets I am learning;
Shut in with God, His will to know;
Shut in with God, the fire of love is burning,
And gracious streams of mercy flow. [Chorus]

4 Shut in with God, I know the peace of heaven,
Shut in with God, I see His face.
Shut in with God, the clouds above are riven;
I revel in His boundless grace. [Chorus]
